I purchased 998N in January of 2000 on the slimmest of aviation budgets.  She has been a dream come true and with the help of Microsoft Paint and about 10 minutes of effort she now goes 15 knots faster.

We were on dawn patrol over the San Joaquin Valley when Jack eased his Coupe into position and Steve shot a one-in-a-million picture.  I have filled many a hangar at FCH with the roar of laughter by passing the picture around.  I glad everyone can enjoy it.
