1952 BEECHCRAFT C-45H FOR SALE
The Twin Beech, or model 18, was designed in the late 1930ís and was in production through the late 1960ís. It is one of the most prolific aircraft ever produced with thousands of civil and military versions used throughout the world. Nothing compares to the Twin Beech.
Here is a photo of what she would have looked like as a Navigation trainer in WWII:
After overhaul and modernization at the Beech factory in 1952 she was upgraded to C-45H standards and continued with the Strategic Air Command at Barksdale, Lake Charles and Maxwell Air Force Base. She was used by the Washington State government where she received many Beechcraft factory upgrade kits. The biggest upgrade was a tall cabin modification (Only two 18ís ever received this modification according to the Beech 18 historian Bob Parmerter). Other mods include G and H model cockpit and cabin mods, ram air carburetor scoops G model engine package etc.
The aircraft is now a fun flying Beech 18 painted in Marine Corps Air Station El Torro markings but these markings can be easily changed as you wish. She is natural metal and the skins can be polished to a great shine if desired. Avionics and any other work needed is also available at our shop that specializes in the Beech 18. Just ask.
