A few more airplanes from the Fly-In

This is the last group of airplanes on display at the Fly-In. They had demonstrations, but I was wasn't able to make it for that.

The Piper Cub pictured above.

Above is the ERCO PQ-13.

From information resting on the front tire.

It was manufactured on 8-14-1941. It was purchased by the U.S. Army Air Corps on August 19, 1941, and delivered to Wright Field Dayton, Ohio as part of the Aerial Target Test Program. The aircraft was painted as it was at Wright Field in December 1941. Of the three Ercoupes purchased by the army (one YO-55 and two PQ-13's), this is the only flying military Ercoupe left in the world today.

Not sure of the type of plane above, I just like the colors.
