    Mouseketeer

    I guess flying a Sierra now I qualify as a Mouseketeer? How do a get a set of Ears?

    My mother went to school with Jerry Lewis and was a Mouseketeer on the radio before the TV show started, so I feel should sure try to qualify.

    The best we might do is a decal, and even that is difficult, plus it is not quite what you had in mind but that decal is "official" and closer to Musketeer than Mouseketeer.

    My single flat door Sport 19A definitely qualifies as a "Mouse" but as to the Sierra, that may not be so applicable.

    The Sierra is the top of the line "Musketeer", and I think that might be why Beech kind of forgot the Musketeer name and came up with a high line name like Sierra. That was also the top of the line GMC pickup for quite awhile as well - then there was the High Sierra, and now the Denali.

    And definitely an inferior ride. Its like a Yugo rebranding itself an Audi...
