I took this picture (top) of a friend’s Piper Cub out on a lake a few years back.

He submitted it to an aviation magazine; it caught everyone’s attention, then was featured in a subsequent issue for one particular reason. Not the plane itself; nor is landing on a snowy lake unique. It’s not a particularly remote location, though it is several miles out on a frozen lake. Any takers?

More pics below just for fun.
