Twin Commander Turbine / With mechanics like these....
« Last post by Adam Frisch on Today at 10:31:53 am »
These are AeroAir's pictures of their inspection of the leaking tanks. As you can see, the tanks look great except for that little wire that you-know-who decided to run right through the tank when they installed winglets! :-[ I couldn't believe it when I saw it. I'm shocked.

Hi There,

My 840 has a Useful of 3209.4.  I am however trying to put her on a diet.  Removing front bar 50 ish lbs, wool carpet 100 ish lbs, avionics etc.

I'm tempted to bid on that! The only thing is, the way it sits, it looks like it's about to crash!

Actually, the last thing I need are more desktop chotchkies...

A few more pics. Iíve been flying it quite a bit.  If youíre considering a 500 or just one of the nicest ways to fly around, you should look at this plane.  I absolutely love it but I own an 840 and a Shrike!

Thank you.   Paint is not new, but has held its own for quite a few years....

I absolutely love my 500B.  It flies great and even with ancient round gauges, I am very comfortable flying approaches into lower ceilings.  Now, I do not have any icing capabilities, so I stay away from that kind of weather.  My 500B has cost me a few dollars over the years to overhaul engines, repair skin issues (Glenn is very away of that...I paid for that work twice), and now completely redoing the interior.  It is still one of my favorite airplanes ever.  I fly as much as I can...and am chomping at the bit to get her back from the interior work.  By the way, John Towner's maintenance shop does all of my maintenance and inspections...probably one reason she flies so well and is so reliable.  It is a 3+ hour flight up to Mosby, Missouri, but it is totally worth it. 

Here is one of my favorite photos of the girl.  As you can imagine, I have more photos of 500GW than I do of my family!!  ;-)
