Built by Aermacchi of Italy but designed by Lockheed, the AL-60 was a rare cargo plane with a spacious cargo section that could be converted to carry seven passengers.

Roomy enough for aero-camping. If only it had floats. — Bob

Jan, Gary, John B. & John T. -- Thanks for the replies; it's greatly appreciated! I like this bird a lot, although her turning radius is a little tight for a tri-gear. I just have to be careful when taxiing. I'm getting better at getting her into short strips, though! :p

Bob -- I totally hear 'ya on the plane camping thing; I wish it had floats too, or maybe amphibs! :D I'm working on a little journey from Ketchikan, AK via Vancouver, BC & Portland, OR. to Denver, CO and want to fly into some backcountry strips along the way, using the camping thing as a theme. I'm thinking of using the AL-60, but want to pick the right bird for the job. My next choice is coming up soon...

Thanks again, everybody!

Kampai!

Alan :)
