No matter how many different aircraft a plane spotter learns to spot, there remains one that you most enjoy pointing out to the airport crowd. That one is the trainer in which you logged your first hour, or soloed, or flew on checkride day. Maybe it was an orange-and-white Cessna 152, or a venerable PA-28-140 (the kind with the overhead crank for a trim wheel), a Cub, an Aeronca Champ, or something sleek and new. Doesn't matter—it's still the most special aircraft in the world. What's yours?
The newest TBM does 330 knots and goes 1,730 nautical miles--and it's in production now.
You'll never guess what goes on inside this sleepy-looking, country home.
It is full of history, and ready for you to come browse.
