The lowly Cherokee 140

Is actually a badazz aeroplane, (for what it is). It's just not fast. But it's a heckuva lot faster than a car, from point A to point B. It can carry a fair load, doesn't burn much gas. And with proper care and feeding, not too expensive to operate. Decent for longer cross country trips, or the "$100 hamburger". Handles grass runways with ease, and will haul the camping gear too. It's just a good all around airplane.
