A couple of weeks ago, I reposted a photo on social media of a house clad in mirrors, so as to blend into its surroundings.
At yesterday‘s annual “MayDay” cookout put on at Deer Valley Airport by the Thunderbird Field Chapter of the Experimental Aviation Association, this equally dazzling aircraft flew in to the event.
It is a 1946 Cessna 120 from the first year of production. Essentially a flapless version of the two-seat Cessna 140, the 120 had a fabric-covered wing, with aluminum fuselage and control surfaces, and an 80-horsepower engine.
All that aluminum has been polished to mirror-like perfection on this example, and I couldn’t resist shooting a few photos.
