Did I miss something? There was no mention of which aircraft he was flying. This being an aviation site that would seem to be a good topic to cover.

The website that is quoted in the story has the details -- it was a Piper Cub:

OK thanks! Too bad the reporter could not have done research. LOL. Of course to them, all small airplanes are Piper Cubs, and all jets are Lears.
