The Birth of the T-50

It was in the later part of 1938 and early months of 1939 that the T-50 twin was develped. Originally designed for
feeder line and persomal transport use, it has proven itself an ideal training plane for multiengine aircraft.
This ship was test flown on a Sunday and with a handful of Cessna employees present, it was taken aloft for the first time
by Dwane Wallace with Bill Snook as co-pilot. It's success is evident by the quantities that were produced for
Canada and the United States Army.

Note:Dwanes wife,Velma (also a highly qualified pilot who later earned her multi-engine rating) took this photo from the chase plane.
