Aircraft Raffle Winner Picks Up Cub

2022 EAA Aircraft Raffle Winner

Bob Cowgill, EAA 607430, of Culpeper County, Virginia, flew his 1946 Piper J-3C-90 Cub home earlier this week, which he won in the EAA Aviation Foundation’s 2022 Raffle during EAA AirVenture Oshkosh 2022. He has been a pilot for American Airlines for 35 years and often travels internationally. In fact, Bob received the phone call that he won the Piper Cub while he was on a layover in Athens, Greece. The Cub was restored by Ellis Clark, EAA 71644, and 3,000 tickets were sold in the raffle, raising money for aviation programs that educate, engage, empower, and inspire the aviators and enthusiasts of tomorrow. The airplane and its restoration were featured in the December 2021 issue of EAA Sport Aviation magazine.
