Cessna 180F Skywagon
The Cessna 180 Skywagon on display is one of two that were the first light aircraft to fly over the North Pole. More than 1,700 of this model were built before production ceased in 1981.
The Cessna 180 is a high-performance four place civil aviation aircraft that was first produced in February 1953. The 180 employed the same wing as the Model 170, but its fuselage and uncharacteristic straight tail, as compared to Cessna’s previous airplanes, were completely new designs. It also came equipped with a powerful 230 hp Continental O-470-R six-cylinder air-cooled engine.
