Trying to locate my Cessna
Hi all...I am new here and it was suggested I give this a shot! Back in 1967, I learned to fly in a 1965 Cessna 150F, tail number N8035S, out of Hartford. A short time ago, that number just popped into my head after 50+ years - no idea why. I immediately looked it up and it came back as that aircraft, to my amazement! In any case, I have exhausted pretty much all avenues to actually locate her.. I'd love to see her again, if anyone might know where she is based! I was lucky enough to get some photos of her from the 2nd-to-last owner, but have had zero luck trying to contact the current owner, in Jordan, NY. I am sure she is based somewhere in that area. The last recorded flight was from Endicott to Skaneateles in June of 2018, but thr reg is valid to 2022. Thanks to anyone who might be able to help!

You are aware of the FAA Tail Number Database correct?

And also aware of the numerous flight tracking websites, one of which shows a flight on August 2018.

I know this post is over 2 years old, but I have your answer - I have this aircraft!  Myself and a young fella working on his PPL just bought her last month.  She definitely does not look as good now as she does in your photos of her, but she still flies!  We are just wrapping up on some avionics upgrades (dual AV-30s, GNS430 with VOR/glideslope on a G206B indicator for basic IFR training) plus switching to an alternator too.  Someone worked her over with a paintbrush and roller to spruce it up, but with paint being on there so thick and heavy, we're just going to strip it completely and polish most of it as large pieces of it are already flaking off.  I'll add some current photos if you are interested!
