Short Final


I was picking up my Cherokee 160 at the Charlotte County (Florida) airport after IFR/weight-and-balance certifications.

As I was preparing to taxi out, I heard another pilot report there was a turtle that was “taxiing” toward runway 22.

Not too long after this report, I heard yet another taxiing pilot ask the question, “What type of airplane is he in?”

I never did hear the turtle report any of it’s five Ws!
