Under the agreement, one of Koontz’ signature airshow acts will feature the Legend Cub.
Based at Bessemer Airport (KEKY) in Bessemer, Alabama, C&D Aviation specializes in Piper Cub parts and building and restoring aircraft.
Koontz is a popular showman on the national airshow circuit. When performing, he offers two distinctly different acts. One is a solo aerobatic routine that culminates with his aircraft flying low and inverted for a ribbon cutting.
The other is called “Alabama Boys” and is also known as the “World’s Smallest Airport.”
The Alabama Boys act was originally flown in a 1946 Piper J-3 Cub. In the skit, Koontz dognaps the airplane. As crewmembers chase him down, a wheel is shot off. Koontz lands the Cub on a moving pickup truck.
Beginning this year, Koontz will perform his Alabama Boys show in a newly manufactured Super Legend HP (like the one pictured above).
The Legend Cub will make its debut in Koontz’s act at this year’s SUN ‘n FUN in April.
