    See my thread on the Mooney tail STC.

    If you haven’t witnessed a 195 engine fire up; well then you haven’t lived.

    I’ve seen warbirds engine starts, how is the 195 special?

    There was an interesting thread on that over at BeechTalk that actually favored the 310.

    310 has a much bigger, more comfortable cabin, Baron is more efficient (because of its smaller cabin). Take your pick... The 58 Barons do get bonus points for the big rear door in my book, though.

    For me, it's more like 310 vs. P-Baron. I can be a little squished for pressurization... But I don't like the way the 1983 and earlier ones have the giant double yoke and the throttle quadrant eating up a lot of the panel space.

    So you can park it next to your Shorts and feel better?

    I had never seen a shorts 360 until I moved to San Juan this past summer. My first thought was "wow, a box with wings!" we have a lot doing cargo work in the caribbean.

    What do you say to a Shorts pilot?

    "Nice airplane, but you forgot to take it out of the box."

    They're certainly good at their mission, which is utilitarian... But those "utility" airplanes, including the Airtruk, seem to often be pretty ugly.

    I don't know why, but the fuselage on that plane reminds me of Dory the fish in Finding Nemo.

    If one was available for decent price and good condition, I would give it some solid consideration... Mainly to stand out from the P & C & B & M crowds.

    And get a tail number ending in MM so I could name the plane "Mad Max"

    Has the looks of an ultralight but those things look like they can haul a lot of crap!

    More than you think per this movie clip. (fast forward to 1:52 to see the aircraft during it's rollout and the entire cast scrambling to get on board)

    I read somewhere, and of course can't find it now, that in crop duster configuration it can carry a metric ton of whatever it is spraying.

    Old super 8 camera but shots of one flying...

    I would have to agree with the T-Bone
    It's the container the 310 and baron came in.

    I don't understand this notion that just because Beech designed the landing gear to be six or so inches taller than Piper's, pilots want to then imagine like they are flying a 707. The Comanche actually has a longer wing, a wider cabin, and is every bit as long as a Bonanza.

    Have you seen the 330? Amazing. Air Wisconsin used to use them as commuters
