Pretty sure that’s a 208B not a 209B like the paper said

That is a 208. Looking at the top of the 208, between the wing and the tail it is flat/smooth, whatever you want to call it, the 209’s is not. Kinda has a bubble in it. And the landing gear is taller on a 208. And the main thing that tells us it is a 208, the FA link says C208/G. :wink:

Ahhh yes, the mythical Cessna 209. Yet another internet sensation.

Ya mean 208?

Maybe I can give y’all so many facepalms it will put a dent in your head… So what kind of plane is it?!?

It was being pointed out that the news source was wrong in identifying the aircraft involved.

Question answered. Thanks dami!
