I have a friend who used to be a farmer, now he's a builder. He had a Bonanza. Him and my son's brother-in-law went to Vegas one night and landed her wheels up! One of my bosses landed a Beach Baron wheels up at Tahoe. Must be a Beechcraft thing.I grew up in the air. Dad was a corporate pilot (after 30yrs as a Navy pilot). We had a J3 Cub and a Bonanza.
When we got the Cub, I had to sit on a boat cushion to see out. Couldn't reach the rudder pedals either. I grew into it.
When Dad was looking for a "family plane" he looked at a Staggerwing Beech. Came back disappointed...said it "flew like a Mack Truck." Good lookin though...gas hog. We ended up with the Bonanza. Dad liked Beechcraft.
