Even a Little Planewatching

I was not expecting to catch a plane but there was one passing by.
It turns out that this was a Cessna 180 that was built in 1953.   The Cessna 180 had it's first flight in 1952 and is sometimes known as the Skywagon.  In total there were over 6,000 produced.  One of these was used by Geraldine Monk in order to fly around the world.  Currently that plane is on display at the Air and Space Museum in Washington DC.
