Texaco - Wings of Texaco #22 (2014) Regular Edition in Silver- 1945 Beechcraft Model 18 "Twin Beech"
The Beechcraft Model 18 made its first demonstration flight in 1937 and production continued for an impressive thirty-two years, with more than 9,000 aircraft built. The low-wing, all-metal, twin-engine monoplane was originally intended as a six-to-eight passenger executive or feeder airline transport, but eventually thirty-two versions were built. The highly adaptable design became a mail plane, a utility aircraft, and a distance and speed record breaker. Military versions included personnel transport, photo reconnaissance, and trainers for navigators and bombardiers.
The success of the Beech 18 ensured the success of Beech Aircraft Corporation throughout the 1940s.
Painted Silver - NOT brushed metal.
