Mooney M20E Super 21   N1284X                  (c/n    157)


                                          Not looking a great deal different from the Mooney M20C I have in the "Classic" section., this
                                          M20E was built in 1962.  It is seen here at Hawthorne Municipal Airport, (in the greater L.A.
                                          area) in 1963.   There are still a few of them around and they command a respectable price on
                                          the used aircraft market.  This particular aircraft ran into Mt. Hood, Oregon,  at the 7500 ft level
                                          after encountering a serve down draft.
