Amazing that so many new airplanes not intended for spinny twirly flying still have the design defect of being susceptible to stalls & spins.

Congratulations to Larry Wells VAA#723934, owner of our Plane of the Week!

Larry tells us, "I own this Cessna 195B that I have upgraded with interior, avionics, and recently a new Jacob’s engine and new prop over the last few years. I am retiring late this year as an FAA Operations Inspector and FAASTeam Program Manager. I have over 26,000 hours and hold an ATP, with types in DC-3, and DC-9, CFI and CFII in airplane and helicopter, MEI, FE, A&P, and IA. The 195 is located a few miles south of Jackson, MS.".

She’s a beauty. Taco Belle is as well.

Congratulations to brothers Ron and Mark Morrison, owners of our Plane of the Week!

Ron tells us, "Our 1938 Beechcraft Staggerwing was purchase by my father in 1976. We completed the restoration and flew it to Oshkosh in 81. In 85 the plane was destroyed by fire and earlier that year my dad died of a heart attack at 58. We rebuilt his Staggerwing in his honor naming it Bills Dream and have had it at every Oshkosh since 1991!"
