CF-JYY  Mooney M20A                        (c/n 1459)


                                              The M20A was an improved version of the four-seat Mooney M20 first introduced in 1953. Power
                                              was provided by a 180 hp Lycoming O-360-A1A engine. Never noted for cabin comfort, Mooneys
                                              endeared themselves to itself to a group of owners who regarded them with the same reverence which
                                              Bellanca pilots revered their Cruisairs a generation before.  Mooneys were not that common in Canada
                                              in the '50s and '60s.  This one was at Vancouver in 1960.
