Photo of the Day: Maule M-4

There are taildraggers, and then there’s the Maule. The Maule family has been building sturdy tailwheel airplanes known for their short takeoff and landing (STOL) capability from the factory in Moultree, Georgia, since the 1950s. This one provides side-by-side seating, somewhat unusual for a taildragger but a definite selling point. Alton Marsh, who’s flown more than a few Maules in his career, describes the characteristics of the Maule M-4 shown here in the article, “Back to the Future,” which originally appeared in the March 2005 AOPA Pilot magazine.
