Watching the Planes Go By

I decided to stop at the Ann Arbor Airport on the way home from work tonight.  I saw that there was a plane doing touch and goes.
 It turns out that the plane is a Piper Archer III owned by the Ann Arbor Flyers which is a flying club that was formed in 1940.  This particular aircraft was built in 2002.
 The Piper Archer III first came into existence in 1994.  It is powered by a Lycoming O-364-A4M engine with 180 horsepower.
 The Aircraft can carry one pilot plus three passengers.
 Sadly, this particular aircraft was only doing touch and goes for one more turn.  Here it is heading back to the hangar.

 As it turns to the hangar.
