Me too. But do you remember the TV show, where the guy flew the twin Cessna? That's what I was thinking of.
There was a show called Ripcord, about skydivers but I don't recall whether it was single or twin engines on their plane.

Sky King flew a Beechcraft.

Age only gives the advantage of two minds together striving to figure out same question.

I googled. Only memory I have to go by.

Me too. I was just a kid when the show was on. I hardly remember it. I just remember watching an airplane fly on tv! I was mesmerized by it!

It also had the hover craft you could buy and assemble lol
remember the Boy's Life (magazine for Boy Scouts?) my brother got it so of course I read it...and in the back they always advertised the sea monkeys. they looked so adorable!! I guess they were brine shrimp, luckily I never had the money to order them, would have broken my heart NOT to actually get those cute little things
