The Cessna Skyhook was operated at the 1962 Seattle World's Fair by Seattle Helicopter Airways, Inc. The Fair created a passenger market for the Seattle dealer and it is reported that over 10,000 passengers were carried during the Fair by three operating Skyhooks. To get the complete history on this aircraft and to see photos of it flying past the Space Needle (in its original gold paint scheme), go to: wwww.collectair.com/cessna. I built this model a couple of years ago after seeing a photo of the real aircraft flying over the Space Needle. This model has been entered in local and national contests and has received several awards. It was a pleasure to build something that represents a unique piece of Seattle's history.
