CESSNA 190 & 195 LC-126


Title:  Cessna 190 & 195 (LC-126)

The Cessna 190 and 195 models (the difference is the engine, the 190 has a Continental engine, the 195 has a Jacobs engine) were one of the first new post-WW2 models produced by Cessna and first flew in 1945, entering production in 1947. They were the first all aluminium airframe produced by Cessna and the only post-WW2 radial-engined model.

Production continued until 1954 by which time 1,120 examples had been built. 83 were supplied to the military as the LC-126 with the rest going to civil customers. The aircraft is considered a classic and is much sought after today.
