HISTORY:

L4 Grasshopper
– Originally built as a civillian aircraft by Taylor Aircraft, the design was purchased by Piper Aircraft after the Taylor Aircraft company went bankrupt in 1930. After the start of the second world war, the design was altered slightly to allow for military service, it was renamed the L4. The L4, along with similar designs by Taylorcraft and Aeronca were known as “Grasshoppers”, and performed many duties such as utility transport, medevac and reconnaissance missions. They were also popular in the artillery spotting role, which was accompanied by the use of smoke rockets. A little known fact about the L4 is that the final dogfight on the western front occurred between an L4 Grasshopper and a German Fieseler Storch. The crew of the L4 forced the Storch down after shooting at the occupants using their service pistols.
