Power Couple (pic thread)

Car was clean and waxed, airport was quiet. After receiving car photos for the past weeks for the e39 and e60 calendars, I needed to get out and take some pics of my own.Here is a staredown between the and a sky hawk.



I fly a number of different single engine prop planes, however, theoretically the M5 is faster than all of them (though with a decent tailwind, the piper arrow comes close on ground speed)

Any other pilot M5 drivers out here?
