venerable Cessna 150 first came on the scene in 1958. Per Wikipedia, "The
150 is a two-seat tricycle gear general aviation airplane, that was
designed for flight training, touring and personal use. The Cessna 150 is
the fourth most produced civilian plane ever, with 23,839 aircraft produced.
The Cessna 150 was offered for sale in the 150 basic model, Commuter, Commuter
II, Patroller and the aerobatic Aerobat models." The design has changed
considerably since 1958, with two of the most notable changes being the
vertical fin and the rear fuselage behind the cockpit. Note that a photo
