Cessna 175C Private Airport Landing

September 16, 2010

The small screen is an aviation GPS…anyone can navigate a plane now. I wasn’t really as nervous as I looked, but still, it’s a small plane. Yes, the landing was a little rough.

    yeah….lucky day….you bloody survived. how many bypass surgeries did your pilot had, did you ever asked him?

    Pretty darn bad landing. Could I ask where this was, and if this was not for leisure? Just curious, because it would be interesting to know if there are non-aviation enthusiasts using small airstrips/aircraft to get to where they want to go.

    I love how the runway just becomes the taxiway to the hangars!

    It would be rough its a grass patch and he stalled the flare.

    Ran the tail number: it’s registered as a 175C.

    172 all the way.. 150s dont have seats in back unless its for a child.

    It’s a much older model 172. Early 60s would be my guess just by panel layout of yoke design.

    Where’s the strip at? I have a private strip in north east Oregon.

    And id say ur right, now that i watch the video again, i realise that there are wing struts, 210s dont have wing struts. My final guess is that its either a 172 or a 182. if you look up pictures of both from the 50’s, they look the same as in the video

    It seems to me like an older 172, it cannot be a 210 because it should have a propeller control, the one in the video is a fixed pitch prop, and the 210 is a much bigger plane too. Plus old 172’s had the divider in the windshield too. I’d say it is a C-172!

    Just a little fast and might have held that nose up after touch down, may have made it a bit softer by allowing the plane to slow down before the nose gear touched the carpet.

    Nice video, and a good landing.

    i cant really tell fro mthe video but by looking at the windows and the divider on the main windshield, im gonna guess its an older cessna 210?

    Well, that’s what he told me it was. It doesn’t have the standard Cessna engine, but that all I know. What is it?

    great video just to let you know however, the plane you are in is not a cessna 150….

Got something to say?
