    I would guess that is in the late 30's because it appears to have a G-2 Cyclone cowling. Entry door on the right, also.

    A beautiful Beech Staggerwing, NC18777... Pilot, perhaps also owner Mr. William Cason of Houston, TX. Mr. Cason was in the Oil Industry in TX in the '30's-'60's.

    My neighbor has a Staggerwing. Beautiful plane, but apparently the design needs -lots- of maintenance.

    Valiant Air Command's Avenger ditched just off of Cocoa Beach in Florida today. Pilot is fine, salvage operations are underway. All that salt can't be good for her.

    It's on a stable jack, no?

    Who knows. The tail can still move. I have seen some disastrous jacking incidents.

    I'm pretty sure that was just caused by an error when the blueprints were made from the drawings. Nobody could possibly have designed an aircraft like that on purpose!

    It certainly was designed like that! Blohm & Voss designed a lot of asymmetric aircraft, though I think the 141 was the only one that was actually built.

    Would be interesting to hear that (big) 3-cylinder clattering away!
