Florida Air Museum is resting place for PiperJet

One of the most interesting sites at the Sun n’ Fun aviation gathering in Lakeland, Florida last week was a retired aircraft I found, not on the flight line, but sitting in front of the Florida Air Museum down the road.

The PiperJet prototype in all it’s DC-10-like glory now graces the museum (where in years past it would have been at Piper’s Sun n’ Fun booth, drumming up orders…), a testament to the fact that the programme really is dead, or at least dormant for a long, long time.
