    1. For Two Zero Tango: "I got a question for you. I noticed your type of aircraft and it's a M600. I looked that up and they said it's a new Piper but you're still a Meridian. How's that work?"

      From Two Zero Tango: {chuckles} "Yep, it's a upgraded Piper Meridian. 600 horsepower. King of the fleet."
