Known as a thermal airship, the design of the balloon in this case is similar to the Thunder & Colt AS-105 and produced buoyancy by heating air in a large envelope, the density of the internal hot-air as compared to the cool ambient temperature outside air causing an upward force
On 8 September 2006 the Cessna Aircraft Company was granted a type certificate for the Citation Mustang, the Model 510, making it the world’s first fully-certified, new-generation entry level business jet.
Following the production of almost 17,000 Cessna 182 Skylanes, Cessna in 1977 decided to build a model of the well proven design with a retractable undercarriage, thus providing an aircraft with the proven reliability of its predecessor with the increased speed and fuel efficiency of a retractable undercarriage.
The P-40 series of fighter aircraft commenced with the XP-40 prototype and developed through the P-40C Tomahawk, which was used by the RAAF in the Middle-East campaign, and ultimately to the Kittyhawk.
