AS the subject says, what is the Cessna 179 Hawkwagon?? The reg is C-GODX but on the Canadian Aircraft Register, it shows as a deregistered Hughes 369HS.




I photographed it taking off at Nelson Yesterday.

Thanks for any help,
Douglas

Quoting Calfo (Thread starter):

I have never heard of such a thing. I am taking a wild guess, but is it a 172 that had the taildragger convertion and the "Hawk XP" enhancments (Which I think was a STOL kit and larger engine, can't remember for sure).

I'm going to go out on a limb here and say that the owner's name is Hank...


If landing is about "kissing" the ground, you just about raped it.

An why would it not come up on the Canadian Aircraft Register?

I would agree it is a 172 taildragger conversion.

I don't see any evidence of the full Hawk SP conversion though.



OBAMA-WORST PRESIDENT EVER....Even SKOORB would be better.

Maybe its just the owners idea.

I tried google and funny how it suggested I actually mean the Cessna 179 chuckwagon instead. Big grin
