Anyone gets this one they are doing bloody well! (No nothing to do with Australia other than the PIC is an Aussie!)

A small hint, it is on the way to New Orleans

That may well be the remains of KFT! It was not quite as bent as I remember.

It'll ripen fairly quickly when it gets out in the sunshine.

It wasn't you know.

We actually caught 10 but most were female and 1 undersize...only those two made the ultimate culinary sacrifice.

NZflyingkiwi she is actually a 1952 model Cessna 195 with a 7 cylinder Jacobs R915 developing 330hp on takeoff at about 26in mp/2200rpm...and flys as she looks.

Pure arse!

PS: There's a C170 in the hangar beside the FTDK, Chuckles! Come visit and you may be able to collect the full set!

Wouldn't the full set have to include the 120, 140 and O1?

Ahh...so many aeroplanes and only one life.

No need to stand corrected...they are identical in all respects except engine hp.

Tin do you know why they started back at low numbers again after the 195... C120, C140, C170, C180, C185 all being later designs?

I don't understand what you found to dislike about the 195...great fun aeroplane.

Very nice to sit in. LOTS more elbow room...much better ergonomics than the 180/185. Easier to taxi, poor fwd vis notwithstanding, and easier to fly than either the 180 or 185. Mind you JTM has 330hp as opposed to most which have either 245hp or 275hp.

Climbs at 1200'/min and cruises at 140-145kts. For an ethusiast (someone who doesn't mind wiping off oil that the engine decided was surplus to requirements) a C195 might just be the perfect private aircraft.
