I took my first steps on an airplane, but didn’t fly much growing up as our family drove to beach vacations in Florida every year.
I did fly in a private plane once and came across this photo of my brother and me with my dad, whose friend owned the plane and offered to take us for a tour around Atlanta.
I looked up the tail number and was shocked to find that the plane, a CESSNA 182J, is still flying and is based in Denver. The CESSNA 182 was first sold in 1956, with an average price around $17,000.
