Too bad the Sun-Sentinel's crack IT team hasn't figured out that a 72x72 pixel graphic is great for a thumbnail... but that's about it...

Yup - and too bad they're seemingly hiring GRADESCHOOLERS to write their articles!!

Check out this direct quote from the article:

What is a Piper Geronimo? I know the Apache and the Aztec but not the Geronimo. Is it a PA-23-xxx?

Yup plus it's had some aftermarket airframe mods applied to it. Squared tail, clam-shell gear doors, dorsal fin, new tighter cowls, extended nose, speed one-piece windsheield, etc.

Really make the Apache into a nice airplane. Think of it as a "poor-man's" Aztec.

Oh yeah .... there it is. "Palm Beach County Park." They should just call it on the sectional what it will be referred to on the radio. Pilots not familiar with the area can have trouble. Like Titusville being called "Space Coast."
