1962 Cessna 210B

Cockpit and Interior

I used to own this wonderful older airplane. It hauled us all over the place for 3 years (~200 hours), until we had our first child. Then it became too small...we ended up selling it to a movie stunt company. They crashed it into a Utah mountainside with 17 cameras rolling. Sigh. Movie of the week!
