Cessna 140

Our Cessna 140 is a small, 2 place airplane. Picture. It seats side-by-side, which makes it an ideal plane to do sight-seeing in. It has rather poor performance compared to the Super Cub; it takes a great deal longer to get off the ground and hauls a lot less. But as a plane to fly airport-to-airport it is a good plane. It gets about twice the gas mileage as the Cub, or 20 miles-per-gallon. It cruises at about 100 miles an hour. My mom and her best friend bought our 140 new in the 1950's, and we have had it ever since. Right now the 140 lives in Lake Minchumina, and my sisters fly it more than anyone else.
