Ian Fleming Foundation acquires Licence to Kill aircraft

The Ian Fleming Foundation which, among other things, seeks to preserve and display vehicles that appeared in James Bond movies, has acquired a single-engine aircraft used by villain Franz Sanchez (Robert Davi) in 1989’s Licence to Kill.

In the film, it appears that Bond (Timothy Dalton) hooks a cable aroound the Cessna plane and a U.S. helicopter hauls it in. In real life, multiple Cessna planes were used. The foundation has acquired the plane shown after the U.S. helicopter takes control.

You can see the plane in its prime in this clip near the end of a 1:30 clip on YouTube that you can view by CLICKING HERE. The clip was uploaded so it doesn’t permit embedding. But we’re leaving an image from it below because it makes this post look better.
