    Not sure how I forgot to post these when I took them, but here they are. Since I'm late, the magazine is already out! Hope you enjoy. I think the cover came out awesome!

    Awesome!

    Is it just me or is the nose cone different?

    Thought the same thing. That's a c model. In the b model the nose itself was stretched 25 inches. Also the Google machine came up with this

    "However, many 421Cs may have the 262-gallon, two-nacelle-tank system—and still have air-conditioning. These aircraft are equipped with the popular JB/Keith Electric Air-Conditioner. (Air Comm Corp. now owns Keith Environmental systems. —Ed.) The air-conditioning components are in the lower left side of the nose base, opposite the heater which is in the lower right side of the nose."

    I'm always glad to see twin Cessnas promoted. Those pictures are great.

    Great pictures. You really captured just how gigantic the beak is. Here, I thought the 310R had a big nose.
