This is a photo taken in June 1967 of a sister ship with the exact same paint scheme.

This photo is a 1966 F150F from the same model year serial number F150F-0012.

G-ATMB was de-registered in the U.K. and listed as destroyed November 9, 1988.

This color photo shows the color and paint markings that would have been applied to G-AWAW in 1966, as a sister ship assembled 25 aircraft later.


G-AWAW was the aircraft Janette Schönburg used in 1980 to

re-trace the 1930 flight of British Aviation Pioneer Amy Johnson

from England to Australia. Janette wrote this book, now out of print and quite rare.



Amy Johnson flew from England to Australia in 1930.



Both flights were solo efforts half way across the world in small aircraft. 


Countdown to the 2018 Confab in the Corn

Come see G-AWAW at Cessna 150 Fly-In at Clinton, IA July 25-27, 2018. It will have to roll in, but it will be assembled as much as possible.
