It's hard for most of us to explain why we really like a particular thing. All we know is what we like, whether it's cars, peanut butter or airplanes. That's right, different makes of airplanes attract fans and collectors. One of the most dedicated groups regularly makes a pilgrimage to Tennessee to experience all things Beechcraft. Rob Wilds recently joined them in a very special celebration at the Beechcraft Heritage Museum in Tullahoma, TN.
