Airborne 07.10.20: Mother Of ALL Cubs, Airshows!, Bristell B8 High-Wing

American Legend Aircraft Company has unveiled its MOAC, a.k.a. the Mother Of All Cubs, a backcountry edition of the Legend Cub.

While rooted in the legendary Super Cub, MOAC is a thorough remake and all new construction from the hands of American Legend. MOAC incorporates numerous performance enhancing features and is purposely built for the backcountry operations. MOAC is the most exciting way to fly low, and slow, while driving performance to the extreme. Horsepower on the Legend Cub has more than doubled with MOAC and current availability of Titan engines from Continental. Up to 208 horsepower (187–195 continuous) results in remarkable takeoff and landing performance on its already strengthened airframe. Our friends at the International Council of AirShows have pointed out a bright spot for the what's left of the 2020 airshow season... As the likely first air show of the season for the U.S. Air Force Thunderbirds, ICAS explains that the Wings Over Warren Air Show (formerly known as Cheyenne Frontier Days) will feature the aforementioned jet team and multiple single-ship demo teams. The July 22nd show is planning to pivot and hold the event in the newly trending "drive-in" format at Warren Air Force Base in Cheyenne, Wyoming. Earlier this year, a few players in the LSA/Affordable Flyer segment made announcements that their mostly low-wing configured airframes were soon to be joined by a high-wing version -- which got a lot of attention from those who love that configuration... and first to the skies is the curvy Bristell B8. BRM's Martin Bristela reported that... "Today BRM Aero has made (the) next step in its history. On 9th July 2020 at 13zulu company test pilot Mirek Rakusan made the first flight with the B8 all metal high wing." The flight reportedly took some 40 minutes, while Mirek Rakusan undertook to test basic flight characteristics and the stability profile of the aircraft. After landing, the test pilot said that the B8 has serious potential to be a 'very stable and fast' aircraft. All this -- and MORE in today's episode of Airborne!!!
