Piper Super Cub L-21B Seneca Serial #'s, U.S. Military Serial # 54-2533, U.S. Civil Serial # 18-3733, U.S. N# N10365, Italian Military Serial # E.I. 235.

The L-21 is a conversion of the civil Piper PA-18 Super Cub with increased canopy area and military equipment. It is used for training and liaison work by the U.S. Army and Air Force and was supplied to many of our allies under the Mutual Assistance Defense Plan (MDAP).

This restored example served in the Italian Army until 1979 when it was returned to the United States. It was acquired by Air Heritage on June 1, 1987 and was totally restored back to it's original Italian colors by the few dedicated members of Air Heritage at that time.

Since June 22, 2009, and an unfortunate ground loop incident the L-21B has been under going another extensive restoration, complete covering and painting, with an engine rework. The paint scheme and markings remain in the colors of the Italian Air Force.
