Default Mer enn 60 år med Cessna - still going strong

En interessant artikkel om historien rundt Cessna, og om en verdensrekord der de drev med in-flight påfyll av mat og fuel fra bil på bakken

Quote:
In 1956, Cessna started building the 172 training plane - and more than 60 years on, it’s still in production. Why has it been so popular?
...
Refuelling and resupplying the plane with food and water was an even bigger challenge. The Cessna had to fly close to the ground and match the speed of a car carrying supplies for the pilots
...
When they finally landed, on 4 February 1959, their Cessna had been in the air for 64 days, 22 hours, 19 minutes and five seconds – a record for a refueled flight that still stands today.

Fant dette så inspirerende at jeg brukte en hel dag på internett for å lese om Cessna - relaterte ting.
På en salgs brosjyre fra slutten av 40årene fant jeg dette bildet:



Da denne maskinen var en 2-seter, vil det da bety at en av damene var piloten?
