Re: Govenment Bug
- From what i understand all government bugs are designated as J-36.
Not all are Lightning bug styled though that seems to be the most popular.
Apparently manufacturers were allowed some liberties (unlike the R-390 where they were all basically clones of the Collins). A Bunnell J-36 uses a cast frame and Champ style damper.
