Weathervane Wednesday ~ A Piper Cub plane

Weathervane Wednesday is an on-going series of photographs I post every week.  I started out by publishing only weather vanes from the Londonderry area, but now I've been finding interesting weather vanes from all over New England.  Sometimes these weather vanes are whimsical, or historical, but all are very unique.  Often, my readers tip me off to some very special and unusual weather vanes.

Today's weather vane is from somewhere in New Hampshire.

Do you know the location of weather vane #286?  Scroll down to see the answer...

This cute little weathervane was photographed on Henry Bridge Road in Goffstown, New Hampshire.  Over the ell is a small, three dimensional plane, like a single engine Piper Cub.  This weather vane is incredibly detailed, and very visible from the street.

Perhaps someone in the house once owned a plane, or was a pilot?  Little single engine airplanes are usually the first airplane someone might own.  It is the type of airplane used by many flying schools, too.  These planes have been around for more than 75 years, and are still popular.
