Do you have parking available for the public? I need to store my car for 48 hours and am looking for a safe place.

I noticed a listing on your associated website (http://www.city-data.com/aircraft/air-Des-Moines-Iowa.html) as follows:

Aircraft: CESSNA 150B (Category: Land, Seats: 2, Weight: Up to 12,499 Pounds, Speed: 90 mph), Engine: AMA/EXPR UNKNOWN ENG (Reciprocating)
N-Number: 1213Y , Serial Number: 15059613, Year manufactured: 1962, Airworthiness Date: 06/11/1962
Registrant (Individual): Richard D Ristau, 3034 E Ovid, Des Moines, IA 50317

This is the exact aircraft in which I took up my 3d passenger on 4/25/64 as a 17 year old. I undoubtedly also took lessons in it at Zahn's Airport in LI, NY. Same N-number and everything. Would it be possible to get a picture of it? It would be quite sentimental.

Thanks in advance.
