Our aircraft C-GXQM, serial No. 0007, was used by Cessna as a factory demonstrator and is one of the oldest of its type. A slight wander in the rivet lines on the wing indicates that it was hand built before the factory tooled up for mass production.
Greg W. Scott, president of Air Support Alberta Ltd from High River, AB, acquired C-GXQM in 1986 from former High River owner Bob Arn (1985-86). Prior to that, the aircraft was owned by Ernie McClain (1980-85) and by Don Oldenburg of Vermillion who brought it into Canada on May 20, 1977 from Chinook, Montana, complete with log books dating from the day it left the factory at Wichita. Scott flew the aircraft over southern Alberta fields, effectively crop spraying 150,000 acres.
Donated to the museum by Greg and Leigh Scott, with the assistance of Fred and Dixie McCall.
