During my primary flight training, I hung out a lot at the local airport, getting to know the pilots and their airplanes.  One guy in particular, we’ll call him “Tom,” stood out; he was a family friend and employed by a local company to fly his boss around in a Piper Twin Comanche.

One day I showed up at the pilot lounge and another local pilot asked, “Hey, did you hear about Tom?”  Fearing bad news, I allowed that I hadn’t.

“They lost all their electrics one night last week, going into Miami in the Twinkie,” the friend said.

“Wow. What did they do?” I asked.

“Bought a Baron.”
