A 415 C THAT WAS OVERLOADED WITH JUST ME AND A FULL TANK OF FUEL. iT WAS A fool proof little airplane. underpowered in the extreme, very tough to spin, the twin rudders were in adequate.the two control system was such that you had to land sideways in a strong crosswind and hOpe the swiveling landing gear could stand the strain. It was a tricycle gear and the C model had a habit of shaking the front gear like a 34 Ford with worn king pins, This one waS LOW TIME AND A HISTORY OF BEING A HANGER QUEEN. oN HOT DAYS IN kANSAS IT USED ALL THE AVAILABLE RUNWAY JUST TO GET IN THE AIR. BUT IT WAS STILL A BETTER AIRPLANE THAN THAT 1969 VETTE WAS A CAR. c B
