I'd name it Happy.
Just because it looks like a happy little airplane.
Or maybe Happy Lee...so you could always be flying Happy Lee.
It’s the Piper that was made from a Corsair drop tank. I forget the model name, might have been the Papoose.
you win thanks for playing. Piper pa-8
Looks like a good name for it would be Rhonda.
Oh my, the rare and elusive Piper Gnat! Such a fine barn find, most have been swatted by now.
Now, did you know that, or did you google the N-number, which is what I did?
Let’s call it Steve!
Saw an article on it in Sport Aviation awhile back. Someone built a replica of it. pretty cool.
The PA-29 Papoose came years later. It was a two-seater prototype of the early 1960s, intended to replace the Colt as the company's trainer competition against the C-150. The PA-29 airframe was made of a composite material that turned out to be not ready for prime time - or even direct sunlight. The project was abandoned. Piper's flight school network needed a trainer ASAP, so they stripped down the existing four-seat Cherokee 150 and called it the Cherokee 140.
Here's another pic of the PA-8 Skycycle. It was not a large airplane ...
Looks like an updated Flivver...
