I've fueled a couple, and the owners seemed pretty fond of 'em. Unfortunately we tended to stay busy, which didn't give me a lot of time to hobnob.

I have exactly 2.2 hours in a Trinidad.  I think they're nice airplanes; they are fairly roomy inside- unlike a Cherokee- and are decent cruisers. If you buy it, you won't regret it.

Yeah, it really sucked when a Citation X rolled up while I was chatting with the pilot of a Stearman one fine day.
Who'd he think I was, anyway????
