Looking forward to AirVenture & seeing Jan Johnson and her beautiful C195 'Elsie Cessna'! Jan's participating in Thursday's Vintage in Review program and we still need two more ladies. If you are planning on flying a Vintage or Antique taildragger to OSH and will be there Wednesday and Thursday, please let me know!!

On Thursday July 28th we will be featuring Jan Johnson from San Jose, California in her pristine highly polished 1952 Cessna 195 (Military designation - LC-126C Mil Reg. 51-6987, delivered to the U.S. Army in the Spring of 1952.) Besides our WWI engine run, Thursday will be dedicated to “Ladies who fly Taildraggers.” Jan is also a member of www.ladieslovetaildraggers.com/
