1960: A Cessna 172 brochure introduced "new fly-away business travel freedom in your own flight/sweep Cessna 172 for '60 - you simply get in and GO!"

Steven Moore, executive director of the National Gay Pilots Association, died Oct. 27 when his Mooney crashed after takeoff at Boulder Municipal Airport in Denver.
