Cessna 190/195 series of airplanes were produced between 1947
and 1954. The "Businessliner" was the last of
the United States produced cabin class airplanes with a radial
engine. With seating for five adults this was Cessna's
version of the modern corporate airplane. This 195 was
purchased new by the Big Chief Drilling Company of Oklahoma
and used as a company aircraft. It changed owners many
times until it was severely damaged in a take off accident in
1980, then left abandoned. Acquired in 1985, it took four
years to restore to its present condition.
