The Naval Aviation Museum's Piper NE-1 Cub is on loan to the Arkansas Air Museum at Drake Field (FYV) in Fayetteville, AR. Seen on 06/28/2013.

Were any of the Piper NE-1's painted yellow, not cub yellow but lemon yellow? I thought they were! Sam Richardson, just wondering before I paint my 1/4 scale RC Model.

If you look at Moffett Field under Gallery, Blimps, on the third page there's a picture "inside-hanger1". On the lower right side under a blimp there's a picture of a plane that looks like a Piper Cub. Could be this plane.
