Laid an eye on 139CD at Charleston, SC airport this week. It was not such a pretty sight! The bird was dirty, nose pant paint scraped badly, and a couple of dings. Comment was made by one of two pilots giving it a visual inspection reflected his disgust-“they never should have outlawed horse whipping”.
My present Cherokee gets 300+ hours per year airtime and its in a lot better looking shape then this one. When my SR-20 is delivered it will get a lot better care than that one does.
