Salvaging a Super Cub on floats

A Super cub that a friend of mine was taxiing up in Northern Ontario when a tornado, microburst, or something, picked the airplane up and cartwheeled it 3 times!

Other than 4 days in and empty cabin with no food or glasses, he was fine!

This what we saw when we arrived on the scene

Pumping air into the floats to get them floating again

Flipping it over

Taking it apart - no wind and four billion black flies!

Taken apart and ready to load - note EDO 2000 strapped to the float of the 180

One wing at a time out on the side of the Beaver

Fuselage on the side , engine in back, and me in the right seat
