    Default Getting reacquainted with an old Classic!

    The Cessna 195, so large but very stable in the air! Nice bird!

    Wheel landing went great, but getting it to slow down, that was a trick! Just got to fly it some more!

    Thanks David! Yes, lot of engine, but the weight might help in slowing this bad boy down. Got to experiment with airspeeds on this one!

    When do you depart for Florida? Have a good time and be careful!

    Oh well, found a better one, as I really do like polished bare aluminum! This will be my "keeper!"

    I agree aluminum is cool!! Having said that, having dealt with radials RW I know they tend to, like British bikes and Harleys, "Mark their spot." Paint might hide the drippings better.

    Just curious, how tough is it to see over that round monster?? I'd think that would require a pretty steep descent. Which might cause the high touchdown speed.

    Yes, Michael, a radial! The 195 is an old Cessna. This was the workhorse before the Cessna 180's came out in 1953. There are still a lot of them around. I saw a fly-in of C195's on YouTube, I couldn't believe how many flew to the fly-in! To answer your concern about looking over the cowl. Yes, a problem when the tail wheel is down, but it doesn't stay down long. Also, best to do wheel landings with these, or a very slow 3 pointer! I like it! The yellow one I had was fine, but all the glass was dark, this download really presents itself well! AND, the red paint goes well with the polished aluminum!!!

    Michael - Here's the download info if you are interested. It comes with 3 liveries, one is bare metal/green, one is the bare metal/red no wheel pants and the one I kept is bare metal/red with wheel pants! I just looked and it has a very nice looking VC! To me, the 2d panel that is offered doesn't offer that much, so I found a panel on another plane that I could use for the time being!

    It is a fun plane to fly and for a single, and being a heavy one at that, it still scoots along pretty well! - Rick
