The Cessna Cardinal (Model 177) Tribute (Lacuna Coil – My Wings)

May 17, 2010


The Cessna 177 was designed in the mid-1960s when the engineers at Cessna were asked to create a “futuristic 1970s successor to the Cessna 172”. The resulting aircraft featured newer technology such as a cantilever wing with a laminar flow airfoil. The 177 is the only production high-wing single-engined Cessna since the Cessna 190 & 195 series to have both fixed landing gear and a cantilever wing without strut bracing.
