Don Stewart's "Baby 180" 1959 Cessna 150, N180EF

This airplane was extensively resorted and converted to a Taildragger by Lorraine Morris of Taildragger Aviation. The airplane was made better than new, including leather seats, polished panel, and a spectacular Cessna 180 style paint scheme. The airplane was awarded "Best Custom Classic" at Sun N Fun 2000.

Later that year N150EF was purchased by  Cessna 150-152 Club member Don Stewart of Columbus, Ohio. Lorraine and her husband Ken have since purchased and refurbished a 1938 Spartan Executive, one of the most coveted personal airplanes ever made. (Only 34 were produced, 12 currently flying)

Don continues to enjoy this most unique airplane, which draws attention wherever it goes.
