Ah, a beautiful Classic Town set. Good for the soul. And there’s no question how this one flies.

Well, very cute. I guess they can't all be winners... Well, maybe that's why there are no more classic smiley faces. All most all of those people died in plane crashes.

Is a must have to add to your city.

Beautiful old Town plane sets. Good times.

Poor guy on the ground. All he wanted was to play tennis. He didn’t know it was a runway...

But seriously, his position on the box art doesn’t exactly look the safest.

A nice little plane, from before the 'ugly Town sets' period...

So simple, yet so beautiful.

Before my time by several years. Always thought that sort of torso, the one with the plane, is awesome.

I want that torso! It's beautiful.
Is the plane taking off or landing? Cos if it's landing it's doing a terrible job of it.

My brother had this own when we were kids. I should really try to rebuild it to give to my niece this summer

My brother and I had this set too! Lovely little plane.
Last year we cleaned and sorted all our childhood LEGO ready for his kids (nearly old enough!)
I hope it brings them (and your niece) the same amount of fun.

I spent hours playing with this set. Now my kids love playing with it!

Classic. Had this set when I was little and it now is in my nephew's collection. Back when all of the city airplane pieces could be turned into other things without being obvious that it was a molded airplane nose or body.

That chap is only in marginally less danger than the patient in 6482 who is about to be crushed the helicopter rescuing him AND appears to have no trousers on...

One of my first Lego sets and still love it to this day!

Great simple airplane set.

Classic design with the angled slopes, small props and 4 wide, but still a good selection of parts to build other things with it as well.

One of my fondest little Town sets from childhood. I'm amazed at how great that plane was at under 100 pieces! Sill have the instruction manual for this and simply must rebuild it someday.

For a small plane, it does the job well. While yes, the nose, tail, and hull can be considered specialty parts, there are relatively few compared to the huge parts like canopies used today. Even the windscreen is a standard one used on cars and trucks as well.
