Went over to the Man Shack yesterday to help run some wire. On my way in I passed the KPUW tarmac and saw something that stuck out like a sore thumb. A couple hours later we headed over so my buddy could show off his new toy, as well as ogle the out of place plane.
The owner showed up while we were looking at the plane, his passengers weren’t too interested in sitting around chatting about the plane. The pilot though was obviously proud of his bird. As well he should be.
It worked out well because my buddies hanger was right next to the taxi way with a clear shot of the runway.
It chews 25 gallons an hour in cruise, but hauls like no other. If I could afford it, I’d buy one in a heart beat if given the chance.
If you were expecting something else, get your mind out of the gutter.
