Bill, If you look carefully, you can see the hinges there for the back window. The piccy was taken from the rear window, pillar not in sight.. But I can assure you it is there...
Opening that little window use to be great in summer to cool the cockpit down, however this a/c has had it siliconed shut! buggers!!
And to answer your question, this is one of my regular rides, we have 3 55's and 4 35's.
Here are a couple more..
Quiet up here!



The Stimulator

Bill.

Rotec Radial (made in Mornington Peninsula, Melbourne) on a Flybaby 2 seater, the only one in OZ... at Narromine, Easter 2007... close enough?

It looks suspicously like a Reims F406 Caravan II...

But it could be an early model...

It definitely smells like a Cessna of sorts...

Having never been in anything bigger than a 208, it's the best I can do.

New avionics stack, but a 70's panel and Bendix A/P FCS.

Fathom - well spotted, 'tis indeed a 500 . If you like the stack, you should see the orange velour seats and the shag pile headliner....not to mention the fluffy dice on the mirror and twin overhead foxtails on the Commant

As they say, there is only so much silk purse you can make out of a sows ear....and a 30 year old aeroplane will never be new, irregardless how many pennies are splurged thereon. Still, the stack is nice....

Hempy,

Sitting on the forward radar of the mighty P3 in tropical Butterworth. Looks like its weather code blue.
