    Default Unknown Aircraft

    Can anyone tell me the type of aircraft this is behind the blond? Is there one available for my FSX library?

    Tim - I don't win many races anymore! And this time, I only got you by one minute! As long as the OP finds his way to the D18, that's all that counts! I have a whole assortment of them and I love flying each and every one of them!

    In its day, the Beech D-18 was more commonly called the Twin Beech. It's a beautiful bird, and I love the sound of those twin radials. The military had several versions, too, with many variations on the C-45 and AT-7 and AT-11 as advanced trainers, in addition to the F-2 for photo-recon. Of course the Navy had their own designations, as did the RCAF and others.

    Note that Matt Younkin puts on a magnificent airshow with a D-18, also.

    Isn't that the same plane they'd use for paratroopers during WWII? I thought it was a C something or other.

    You're probably thinking of the C-47, the military version of the DC-3. It was also nicknamed the "Gooney Bird."

    Inuss has the USAAC/USAAF/USAF designations right. The USN designation was the JRB, the British/Canadian name was the Expeditor.

    I don't recall exactly when Beech did this, but they turned the main landing gear around so the main leg attached to the rear of the nacelle, then they lengthened the nose and put a nose gear leg there, and now the airplane had a tricycle landing gear!
