Piper L4 Cub, Venezuela Air Force

Continuing with the commemoration in 2020, of the 100 Year Anniversary of the Venezuela Air Force.
Originally called the O-59A, it was later designated the Piper L4 Grasshopper, when it entered the operation in the US Army (US Army Corp) in the mid-1930s. A large number of these aircraft were built, which were used as training aircraft and but mostly as observation aircraft.

Three Piper L4 were received by the Venezuelan Military Aviation in the early forties, which were used as observation aircraft.
