A question for Barry.
Based on your sig, you by chance a split tailed doctor killer pilot?
Straight-tailed, ATC-clogging, bugsmasher, Spam can pilot. <G>
A BE23 type is a Sundowner / Musketeer / Sport / Sierra (B19, A23, C23,
A24, C24). They look like a Piper Cherokee with an extra door, more
room, and a few less knots. The Bo's and Debonairs are usually type
BE33 and BE36, so you had a great guess! We do get the occasional
"Why is your Bonanza going so slow?" from controllers who have us typed
into the system as a 33. <G>

(actually, just a mile south of OMN) and ERAU and didn't even know
anything was going on until I went out and got the morning paper next
day. We had some heavy rain for a spell, one flash of lightning, but
nothing out of the ordinary for wind. Ah, well, that's the nature of
tornadoes (26 year veteran of the Illinois variety).
I wonder if the insurance companies are going to want to raise rates

And while I'm pontificating, I've done no small amount of snickering
at the hand wringing prognisticators who, after the 100 year
misadventures of 2004 and 2005, had predicted another "active"
hurricane season with several making landfall on the U.S. I was only
10 or 12 years old and living in South Florida when I figured out
hurricanes don't hit every year and you can't predict what they're
going to do in any event.
Thanks for thinking of me.
