1962 Cessna 210B
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!

Notes: Flies true. Book fuel consumption, but 5 knots slower than book.
1 qt. oil every 4 hours (stable). Oil analyses are good.
Compression: 72, 72, 70, 70, 55, 68. I've rechecked the "58" and
it is now 72. Most SBs complied with from CPA 210 owner's manual.
With STOL kit, stalls are approximately 45kts and short fields a breeze!
