Algona Pilots Buy $25,000 Plane Tuesday, May 9, 1967 Algona, (la.) Upper Des Molnes—9 Algona Pilots, Inc. purchased a new 1967 Bellanca 260C for use of its 86 active members and it was displayed publicly for the first time Thursday at the Algona airport. The new ship, which has a 260 horsepower, fuel-injected engine, will cruise at 200 miles per hour — and cost slightly more than $25,000. It became a necessity for club members, who needed a craft which would get them to distant places faster than the other four planes owned by the club. Dr. A, J. Gotten, local veterinarian, and Oliver S. Carlson, member of the board of Algona Pilots, Inc., are shown standing beside the new plane in the photo above. The 260C is equipped with an auto-pilot, radio, has a real plush interior and was built at Alexander, Minn. Algona Pilots, Inc. is the largest flying club of its kind in the state of Iowa. Anyone interested can join the organization by contacting a member or Wayne Johnson, airport manager here.
