    I think each pilot's definition of what is a "cross-country capable" airplane will be different, as has already been demonstrated to a certain extent in this thread. Each pilot needs to figure out...

    Dive Bomber is an excellent movie. Not for the story line, but for the great footage of pre-WWII Navy aircraft. Gotta love the TBD Devastators! Don't see those flying around these days!
