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!! ;-)
