An old Cessna model 195B single engine aricraft is seen while situated at Albert Whitted Airport in Saint Petersburg, Florida, mid 1970's. This aircraft utilized a 275 HP Jacobs radial piston engine and could hold five passengers plus baggage. They utilized conventional landing gear and were a high winged aircraft. The plane was in beautiful condition for an aircraft produced during the early 1950's. This is one of my personal favorite vintage or classic aircraft. These planes could cruise at close to 170 mph, not bad for an old timer. When you opened a cabin door a small ladder would drop down for boarding or unloading.
