We cared for this airplane. Always hangared, she lived a pampered life. Bill Turley, of Aircraft Maintenance in Bartow, Florida, kept everything running. Whenever there was a question, Bill managed the problem. I could call him from anywhere and get the right advice. These were always minor things, such as a little bit of rubber peeling from around the windshield. We painted her. We had a fabulous interior done at Duncan Interiors in Lakeland, Florida. Fourteen years later, it still looked like new. While I was working full time as a surgeon, an evening visit to this airplane in the hangar brought me solace. When fuel prices were high, Cathy and I and our dog would drag some supplies out to the hangar, open her up and sit there, drinking martinis. This was the airplane that I was selling.
