New tag, in the same general area for those who were looking forward to some 22 strafage:

Gene Snyder Airport on Airport Rd. right off of 22.
Doesn't look like that poor V tail Beechcraft is going anywhere any time soon

A little further south, but well worth the ride.
Nice restaurant to have lunch at, esp if you catch the lunch buffet on Tuesday, Friday, Sat & Sun...

It's on the edge of 100 miles, but with better weather coming I figured it would be nice trip to get out and stretch the legs... plus, there are so many great roads between here and there

It hasn't moved from that spot for the better part of 10 years. Would be a super nice airplane for someone willing to fix it up.

While we were there another Beechcraft V tail taxied out and took off. I wouldn't be surprised if they were both owned by the same person (as they are fairly rare) and if he was using one for parts for the other. The wingtip damage would pretty much require an entire wing rebuild and a full airframe inspection...

If you saw an airplane take off from Gene Snyder that's a rare event, let alone a Bonanza! You could very well be right about the parts plane thing. I looked up the tail number on the FAA registry and the airworthiness certificate expired 3 years ago. It would take $50k and an act of God to get it in the air again (legally).

Re: Need a reason to ride? Lets play....

I found it and its 91 miles from me. With the threat of rain today and the late start I'll have to leave it for another day. As pat Benatar would say Love is a Battlefield.
