    Okay, now that we have "The Best Bo" settled, back to regular programming. Like bashing thevFAA, or Cirrus flyers, or light twin owners, you know...

    Bo Jackson was a two sport star. He use to play professional Baseball and finish the season and then play professional Football. I really believe if he didn't get injured playing football he would've been the first hall of famer in both sports. He ran a 4.1 in the 40 yard dash a record that holds today I believe. He was a freak of nature strong AND fast with those traits he would probably do well in ANY ERA.

    Do you want to go fast ?
    Do you want to go far ?
    Do you need to carry 5 and luggage ?
    Do you want to fly in known icing conditions ?
    Trying to fly into back country strips in Idaho ?

    Which Bo is the 'best' will depend on the answer to those questions.

    For my money, a late 70s A36 upgraded to an IO550 and equipped with Osborne tips and VGs would be the 'best'.
    For someone else, a TAT equipped F33A or V-tail is the 'best'. Just depends.

    I would nominate the F33C, the only Bonanza certificated for aerobatics (T-34 is technically not a Bonanza). I don't need to carry a grand piano or 5 passengers, so the F33C would be the most fun for me. Heck, ANY Bonanza would be a hoot to fly, but being able to LEGALLY perform a loop, roll or spin would be cool.

    Love that plane. Flew them back in the 1965-1967 period.
    Be careful, certain maneuvers will damage the vertical stabilizer.
    I can say that, right? The statute of limitations has run out by now, right?

    Back during the height of the "Bo Knows" stuff, a buddy of mine had a t-shirt that read "Bo Knows your sister," cracked me up.
