The TransCanada Highway crossed below me as I glanced at the Cav's airspeed read out. We eased up through 80 mph with the RPM good and the plane climbing strongly. I smiled to myself and thought for the tenth time that evening how much I love my airplane.

That is not uncommon and I have a few aircraft for sale now that are being sold “as is where is”. This means you need to do your own due diligence and know there will probably be a few surprises.
