Jill Sprockett’s got a beautiful new airplane!
Yep, a fine looking 1946 C85 Cessna 140. Jill isÂ based at 62D, Warren Airport, Warren, Ohio.
From Jill, “I went to the Lockhaven flyin in Pennsylvania and was walking by checking out all the planes and came across a 140. I really liked the looks and the profile of the airplane and talked with the guy who owned it. He told me nothing but great things about the airplane so I went to Barnstormers and found this one. Left LockhavenÂ and went to Zanesville, Ohio and fell in love with this plane. A few days later went back and bought it!”
