    How close is Roswell?

    Or more accurately . . . how close is Mexico?

    And if the aircraft is caught drug smuggling [and a 210 is the perfect single engine airplane for that] the owner always has some ‘splaining to do what with their aircraft being ‘conveniently’ stolen just in the nick of time to be caught smuggling a white powdery substance . . .

    A 210 might be the perfect plane but the one in the picture is a 182.

    WT1958…you are spot-on!

    WT & Planehook; Hate to tell you this, but look at the bottom of the fuselage and you can see the hole for the main gear to retract in. Comanche’s right.

  5. Earl Whyde says:

    I stand corrected. It’s a 182 retract….forgot 210’s don’t have a wing strut…Am I so embarassed😦

  6. larry snyder says:

    Early 210’d did have struts but also a bump in the nose for the gear. You can see the rear gear holes. This is a 182 RG. Nice plane.

    tr182/G. Police don’t know if it was flown away? Well DUH! Are these the keystone cops?
