Shuttle Carrier & a Cessna 400

Nice Pics! We've had a Kelly Aerospace Cessna 400 on our ramp over the last month, mean look with the forward sweep on the landing gear!

Did you fly with Pia? What did you think about the Cezz 400?
Yup, I flew with Pia! She was great about letting all of your CFI's go up for a quick hop. She even took us out for lunch on Cessna's tab. It's a great plane, but it makes it painful to step back into a 172!

Too bad the cessna 400 has a really crappy useful load for the engine size (only about 400lbs after you put in a full tank of gas). I would rather get a Diamond DA40xx or a cirrus sr20. Used, both are way cheaper than the 400 and both have useful loads of 600lbs (after full tanks) with a <200hp easy on the gas consumption as well.

Anyway, what was cooler: the shuttle or the 400?
