How many times has this happened to you? You have a Piper Seminole, and you’re trying to find an exciting new way to prepare it for the dinner table. You could scale the Seminole, remove the Seminoles’ tail, wings and flaps, and try to serve the Seminole as you would any other aircraft. But why bother, now that you can use Rovco’s amazing new kitchen tool, the Super Prop-o-Matic. Yes, plane lovers, the days of troublesome scaling, cutting and gutting are over, because Super Prop-o-Matic is the tool that lets you use the WHOLE Seminole with no aircraft waste, and without scaling, cutting or gutting.
