One of the largest annual airshows in the country is held in Oshkosh, Wisconsin. The airshow holds a STOL competition where pilots compete for the shortest combined takeoff and landing on a grass strip marked with cones. The STOL competition draws larger and larger crowds each year and is my favorite part of the airshow. This set captures the excitement of a STOL competition with the original short field airplane, the Piper Cub.

This set contains all the parts needed to enact a STOL competition. Mark off the runway with cones. Take off and land with the airplane. Fuel and maintain the plane to keep the fun going. The airplane also makes a great display piece.
