    Just to give you a hard time:

    One of the Beech 18's I personally flew in 1965 / 67 was built in 1957. The owner picked it up new from the factory. There wasn't a military mark on it. I took to to Volpar where it was converted into a Tri-Gear Beech 18. I flew it a lot less after that as the owner could land it by himself after that.

    Another was built in 1939 Also a Beech 18, civilian however it was converted to C-45 configuration during the war and back to Beech 18 (up graded to S model) after the war.

    Not that it matters, its all in the eye of the beholder.

    Several versions of the Twin Beech (AKA Tin Bitch) that were military C-45, AT-11, AT17 (Army), CU45-J and SNB-1 (Navy) These were Warbirds / Classic.

    The Beach 18 is the civilian version that was produced until 1969.

    Confusing, isn't it?

    Ollie, please do not create your own list. My list does not include the blatantly obvious as I do not want it to be five pages long.

    If you wish for something added to the master list please ask!
