A 1964 Cessna 150 is missing from its hangar at Hornell Municipal Airport in Hornell, N.Y., and presumed stolen. Pilots, aircraft owners, and airport personnel can aid in the search by being on the lookout for the airplane, N43ED, and reporting any sightings to the Steuben County Sheriff's Office at 607/776-7009.
The aircraft was last seen at the airport in late September and was later reported stolen. It is equipped with long-range tanks and a 150-hp engine. The registration number markings are smaller in height than the standard 12 inches, as is seen in some older aircraft. Pilots may notice a larger propeller and non-standard cowling. Also, the aircraft was previously Canadian registered; the Canadian registration numbers were painted over, but the outline may still be visible on the bottom of the wings.
Pilots have formed a user group and launched a petition drive to save Runway 5/23 at Joplin Regional Airport in Joplin, Mo.
AOPA is urging Santa Rosa County officials who operate Peter Prince Field in Milton, Fla., to revise proposed rules to eliminate potential conflicts.
