Cessna Skymaster

James Gibson, The Flier's World. Random House 1976
A distinctive airplane, anyone around Toronto who looks up knows the traffic-reporting Skymaster flown by Darryl Dahmer.
 Unique among multi-engine craft, the centerline thrust provided by the push-pull engine configuration provided a measure of safety to the airplane. Almost 3000 were built in several different configurations between 1963 and 1982.
