    184 pounds. It was 170 for many years. Not sure what the luggage.

    I'm hardly a small person. I spent my entire Air Force career within 10 pound of my max allowable weight.

    Living in the Midwest, however, I've never felt more svelte. Thanks people of Ohio!

    If the pilot's good, see, I mean if he's reeeally sharp, he can barrel that baby in so low... oh you oughta see it sometime. It's a sight. A big plane like a '52... varrrooom! Its jet exhaust... frying chickens in the barnyard!
