    Since I don't have a Mooney (or Bonanza or the plastic plane with a red handle) I'm rotting away at KPHL waiting for a commercial flight. Over the announcements I heard an announcement for gate F33. Of course the first thing I think upon hearing that is how much better flying home on in one of those would be than in the back of a CRJ.

    I've also noticed that I get oddly happy when I see number/letter combinations like 152, 172, 140, Pa28, J3, 707, 747, etc in normal life.

    Does anyone else on here have a similar affliction?

    It is Staggerwing how often this happens to me. I just made a Comet to a friend and her Bo the other day about this.

    After I started flying Grummans I started eating more alfalfa in my salads.
