SOLD in three weeks.




I'm not sure if I should offer congratulations or condolences.... perhaps some of both would be appropriate.

I gotta ask... where in California is it headed?

Somewhere about an hour east of Los Angeles. I forget the name of the airport. FlightAware shows it enroute to Colorado after I gave up the keys, but no arrival information or destination after that leg.

No condolences necessary. I enjoyed owning it and now I enjoy looking forward to something else. And I am very happy that I did not have to endure a lot of hopeful showings and lowball offers.

So, an update:

After I sold the Bonanza as I promised my wife, we paid down our debt and found we had about $30K left over. I started shopping for little airplanes so I would have something to fly.

We wound up with a PA-28-140 with only 500 hours on the 160hp engine and just 3000 total time. Decent, but very dated, radios and instruments. Average exterior.

People have asked me if I miss the high performance. I tell them, "Yes, ever since my last flight in the T-38."

Ah yes, "government gas". <g>

Reminds me about batting along one day, Connie Edwards was in the A-26 ahead and I was trying to catch him, couldn't get it done, watched him up ahead a l-o-n-g time so finally I radioed him "Dang'it Wilson, just how fast is that 26 anyhow?" Connie answered me, "Government gas or Edwards gas?"

best, randy

Kinda how I felt after flying the CH-54 (better climb rate than F-4 to 10,000M). :))
