Cessna 195          N3089B                (c/n 7974)


                                             Shortly after the 120/140 models were introduced by Cessna after WW II they designed a
                                             'top of the line' aircraft, which came in two flavors:  The 190 powered by a 240 hp Continental
                                             R-670-23 and the 195 (the more common of the two) powered by a 300 hp Jacobs R-785-A2.
                                             This deluxe 'Businessliner' as it was known had leather interior trim, full instrumentation, the works.
                                             A superb flying machine it was not without its vices on the ground.  Not for the faint of heart -
                                             this beauty.   The photograph above was taken at Horizon Airport, just south of  Las Vegas,
                                             Nevada in 1990.   I understand it has won some awards for its gleaming condition.
