Yesterday I was stopping by my hangar to get a compressor that I store out there... and as I am driving up I saw her... one of the two Cherokee 140s that I did all of my primary training in... N75186. I first flew her on December 11th, 1977, and flew her many more times over the next four years. Between this aircraft and her near-twin sister, N75248, I worked my way from my first flight to my commercial license several years later. I did my commercial long cross country in N75186... I still remember that day, flying the entire perimeter of Lake Michigan. All in all a great day. The current owner just redid the panel, upgrading it nicely. I hope that she will be flying for many years to come.
