It’s been 6 or so years since I sold the Sundowner, and basically quit flying. But, I figured it was time to “GO FLY!” So, I began to look for a plane, preferably something simple, inexpensive, and suited for what I expect to use it for. Those “long trips” with extra seats, well.. that turned out to be only an occasional value. Most of what I want to do is “local flying”, and basically short flights to lunch, or overnight to places like Half Moon Bay, Harris Ranch, or Columbia.
Four seats were no longer needed, and I had always loved my years having a Cessna 150. Maybe a Citabria or similar, as those were better flying machines. But fabric and outside storage would be unkind to the airplane. So, I “BY LUCK” found a 1970 Cessna 150K in excellent condition with relatively low hours, and everything maintenance wise done (propeller, new radio, new cylinder, good paint and windows….). And bonus..it was at the home airport!
Since buying, I have been extremely happy. The airport has always been a haven of fantasy, wonder, and sanity, a magical place in this crazy world.
Having an airplane is good for the soul!
