    My Bo’s Airworthiness Certificate was issued in February 24, 1969.

    The top song that day? Sly and The Family Stone - Everyday People

    Looks like number 1 on the charts for the longest, nine weeks in 1960 goes to Percy Faith, Theme from “A Summer Place”. Back when music was actually good (I’m only 37yrs old). Interesting that an instrumental was so popular, beating a lot of Elvis songs that year.

    So the day the airworthiness certificate was issued was also the very first day that the era of the Hot 100 was born.

    It's either "Low" Flo Rida featuring T-Pain (when I took delivery on the kit)

    or

    "See You Again" Wiz Khalifa featuring Charlie Puthw. (when the airworthiness cert was issued)

    Got no idea what or who any of that is.

    November 14, 1973 -- Eddie Kendricks, "Keep on Truckin'"

    Seems entirely appropriate for a 45+ year old airplane.

    All my friends know the Flo Rida.
    The Flo Rida is a little higher.

    Carole King - It's Too Late / I Feel The Earth Move. I've heard of Carole King but have no idea what the song is.

    Edit - I went and looked it up and I have heard that song before. Not bad for 1971.
