A loving portrait of an aircraft which began life as a corporate business air transport in 1937. The ”twin Beech” soldiered on as a military training and utility aircraft during and after World War II. Civilian production spanned over thirty years.

The Beech 18 shown is a surplus C-45 flown by the Sinclair Oil Company in the years after WWII.
