As I am sitting here at the dealership on a cold, snowy, blowing Saturday that is typical of Colorado “spring”, reading reports of the weather and the 800+ flights that are canceled out of Denver’s airport, I think, “if Subaru made those planes, they wouldn’t have this problem
This led to a second though, of all the airplanes out there, what one is the most “Subaru”. Subaru started off as an aircraft manufacturer and there are the various aircraft that FHI has made over the decades, but I’m taking about what plane best feels like it shares the same spirit as the Subies we know and love?
My vote is the C-130. It’s not the biggest, fastest, most glamorous or highest tech. It’s a great rugged companion that does just about everything you want it to do out of the most remote places and it just keeps going. Some people don't get the C-130 but to the pilots and crew that work with them that I have talked to, there's nothing else.
So aviation fans here in Outback land, what plane do you think is really Subie and why?
