I was near the Tulsa airport and heard an unusually loud aircraft on final approach. I looked up to see this very odd business class airplane and was able to get a quick shot as it went overhead. It’s hard from this angle to tell which direction this thing is going! After some research I find that this is an Italian made pusher type turboprop, namely the Piaggio P180 Avanti II. Not surprisingly, one of the principal owners of the company is named Ferrari. This baby will carry up to nine of your favorite business executives to the corporate hunting lodge in style, cruising around 463 mph at 41,000 feet. About $6 million will get one for your very own. Truly a unique design.
