Cubs are very light ... and the earth was wet and bumpy ... so unfortunately the prop started digging in the ground. No real damage to the aircraft. The Cimber ATR behind has nothing to do with the incident - it just passed on the taxiway behind.

Perfect timing! Shame about this gorgeous little Cub though. I cetainly hope there was little damage. Probably at least a prop, crankshaft and a bent stick....

Great timing. I wouldn't say "no real damage" though! - any prop strike is an automatic engine tear-down!

Great shot, I was there, and have almost the same shot from approx 4 o'clock of the aircraft. Saw it flying the other day, so it's had it's engine replaced.
Very nice little plane, and it did a good routine in the airshow :)
