This happened at Flying Legends a couple of years ago but video has recently been posted on YouTube. From what I can remember the engine lost power on final approach, he landed short of the runway and was launched into the air when crossing a taxiway .

That jump made my heart stop. Ouch.
BTW, Adam, I recently found ClippedCub.com, and wrote a little about it on my website, www.taildraggersinc.com. I tried to send you an email at the address given on the site, but it bounced back. That's one sharp J-3 you've got there.

OUCH, is right....but it could have been a whole lot worse if he had not kept flying the plane. Just glad the pilot was okay and only a few things got bent, not destroyed
