Photo of the Day: 2005 Sweeps Commander

Tuesday, August 14th, 2012

AOPA’s annual sweepstakes aircraft contest is a favorite among our members. Sometimes we acquire an older aircraft and refurbish it from the ground up. Sometimes–as is the case with this year’s Tougher than a Tornado Husky–the aircraft comes to us fairly new. (The Husky had sustained some damage in the storm that blew through Sun’n'Fun 2011. That’s since been repaired.) For the 2005 sweepstakes, we found a 1974 Rockwell Commander 112A that had a low-time engine and propeller and an airframe with just 2,038 hours. The Commander got a new instrument panel, among other upgrades. —Jill W. Tallman
