To mark the 50th anniversary of the Cessna 150, 21 aircraft
arrived in formation on Friday as part of the International Cessna

operated under a special arrangement and letter of agreement with
the FAA Oshkosh ATCT Lake hub.

departed Runway 23 in an in-trail formation for the trip to Ripon,
and followed the Fisk arrival into Airventure. 2 Australian club
members joined the arrival, making it a truly international event.
Matthew gray of Syndey, Australia, joined the group for his second
trip to Oshkosh in a borrowed Cessna Cardinal.

bags that included a gold 50-year medallion and a commemorative
patch. The arrivals tied down in the North 40, and celebrated the
event with a group dinner Friday evening.
