This airplane is a post WWII Cessna 195. It is not the military LC-126 version. BTW, what is the little plane flying behind the Cessna?
Culver Cadet. I'd bet it's N34855.

Thank you for the kind comments. I posted this under 'LC-126' because FlightAware doesn't seem to have a listing for '195' for uploading photos.

All credit due to the photographer, Chris Kunkle who kindly allowed me to share these photos of my plane. He certainly has a bright future as a lensman. Pictures were taken from a C185, where Chris was in a safety harness shooting from an open door. A real pro!

Paul, that is a 1946 Culver Cadet, owned by my pal Mike, who was my very first flight instructor c.1981.

Just saved to my files this beautiful closeup photo! Love the Cessna 195, a great design, always interesting.
Douglas Miles
That is one beautiful aircraft. The word "Craft" is befitting the design work that went into these old birds. Those folks back then had some great ideas when it came to sleek design that was also elegant.
OMG - an all wood Culver Cadet! Oh, and a very nice 195 - great shot

I recognized the C195 immediately. I recognized the other plane as a Culver Cadet, but have not seen it in person. I have been in that C195 twice in flight.

What is the HP in the 195. ?

Wayne, this model has 275 HP. The C190 has 240 and some 195s has 300 or 330 hp. A mod called the 196 has 450 hp with Pratt R985 installed
