One Stout Cessna
« on: December 15, 2009, 04:04:49 PM »
I gotta say that is one STOUT Cessna!  I've never seen that tough of a engine mount on ANY Cessna.  Must be Julio's private little field mod because Chuck is so hard on planes ;)

Seriously, first time I saw a 152 without a cowl when I was doing my flight training I thought "THAT is all that holds the engine to the plane??"
The average pilot, despite the sometimes swaggering exterior, is very much capable of such feelings as love, affection, intimacy and caring. These feelings just don't involve anyone else.

HA HA! I remember seeing my first Cessna. I don't know what I was expecting, maybe a hood like on a car. I was shocked to see the thin aluminum....

But in all seriousness . . . the Cessna engine support and baffles are just thinner than my bro's pencil when scaled down to a three panel strip!  ::rofl:: ;D
