Especially Bird Dogy famous during the Korean and Vietnam Wars. For saving the life they owed hundreds of downed pilots, to which small and inconspicuous Cessna guided rescue helicopters. And without Cessen in the role of forward air controllers branding goals in the Vietnamese jungle if they were American supersonic fighter-bombers completely "blind".

The Cessna Bird Dog is also connected to one particular and instructive tale: the day before the fall of Saigon, South Vietnamese Air Force Major had done in his two-seater Cessna wife and five children, and flew away over the sea. When he appeared on the horizon Midway aircraft carrier flight deck crowded with army helicopters evacuated, it remained barely had fuel per flight hour.

His Cessna is today exhibited in the Museum of Naval Aviation in Pensacola.

You will improve in the building "žbrdličkové" skeleton fuselage and wings, paper coating and painting, preparation and curing the rubber volume zalétávání - just all those wonderful skills genuine classic modelařiny.
