Rare Cessna over The Broads...

Post  News Hawk on Sat Aug 03, 2013 2:39 pm

A Cessna 190, from the 1950s, is a rare sight—even rarer is to see one on floats...Amphibious floats even more rare!

Shocked 

One reason for its rarity is the [reliable but] costly-to-repair radial engine that won World War II for the USA.

(An air-cooled engine, with cylinders arranged around the engine's center crankshaft).

You should blur out the numbers. Unless you have prior consent that is.

Would that model be their version of the Bombardier Beaver? Same time period.

Dunno. I'll look it up later.

Here's why amphibious floats are such a great accessory:

Oh good. You know, you could always fool me with pictures, because I can never see what others see in the pictures. If I enlarge them, they get blurry. Anyway, good one fsh, even though I didn't get it.
