(Oh, I didn’t even see the license plate mounted down there at first. I saw the empty frame so I thought this ride was going commando, as so many others do. In mitigation, at least this bus has a license plate.)

The turbocharged Piper Seneca II, for the times when your Saratoga can’t get you there fast enough:

Anyway, people need to know who pilots are for the times they land on the wrong end of the runway ‘n stuff.
