Eighty years ago on this date, July 8, 1937, the first airplane rolled off the assembly line at Piper Aircraft in Lock Haven. Piper was the No. 1 name in civilian aviation for decades. Due to winter weather, they moved some production to Vero Beach, FL and after Hurricane Agnes in 1972, Piper moved out of Lock Haven completely. All that remains is the museum.

Sad. When I was in Lock Haven I learned that the other big employer was Scott Paper, but they, too, departed.

My family and I have known a few people who owned a Piper Cub. They were kept at the airport in Forty Fort. I got a ride a couple of times.

Very scenic area. If I had a company, I would move it there. Rt. 120 is my favorite bike route on the way to St. Marys and beyond.

If PA can't make it on Museum fees and other tourist attractions the like, this state has a very poor economic prognosis.

IMO. and many others.
