Hi fellow wiki editors!

To help newly registered users get more familiar with the wiki (and maybe older users too) there is now a {{Welcome to the wiki}} template. Have a look at it and feel free to add it to new users discussion pages (and perhaps your own).

I have tried to keep the template short, but meaningful. /Johan G

Piper PA-24 Comanche

Comment out the "updated model" text, as the number of changes is small and it detracts from Dave's efforts.
The '''Piper PA-24 Comanche''' is a four-seat, low-wing, all-metal, light [[aircraft]] of monocoque construction with retractable landing gear that was first flown in May 1956 according to a Piper Aircraft Company press release. Together with the Twin Comanche, it made up the core of the Piper Aircraft line-up until 1972, when the production lines for both aircraft were wiped out in a flood.
<!-- This detracts from Dave's original efforts and the small number of changes should be submitted upsteam.
