Default N1991M with paint by Stahr

My son Doug wanted our airplane to be silver. John Stahr, of Artistic Aviation, suggested that silver and grey would be poorly visible in the Oregon sky, so he came up with the idea of a dark belly to give a more noticeable silhouette against the sky and transitioning to a silver top. He also added the chrome stripes on the wings and fuselage, which I think make the plane look sleeker. I just wanted to show off John's excellent work:

Default Long time comming

In my quest to burn lots of av gas and get closer to 40 hours, I landed at Arlington (KAWO) today to check things out. There was a gentleman practicing with his new lens for the airshow next weekend so after lunch I asked if he could send me the pictures. Well what do you know, a few hours later I have an email and I love it.
