1956 BEECH G-35 BONANZA AIRFRAME , SUPER NICE IN AND OUT, TAIL DAMAGE, CHEAP !!
THIS G MODEL BONANZA HAS BEEN UPGRADED SO THAT IT IS SIMILAR TO A "P" MODEL, THE MOST BALANCED OF THE V TAILED LINE !!
IN FACT, THERE ARE UPGRADES WHEREVER YOU LOOK !
WHEN I GO TO LOOK AT AIRPLANES, AFTER I HAVE ALREADY BOUGHT THEM AND BEFORE I SELL THEM, I GET A FEW MOMENTS THAT REMIND ME OF UNWRAPPING CHRISTMAS OR BIRTHDAY PRESENTS WHEN YOU WERE A KID.
I BUY AIRPLANES AS-IS, OFTEN WITH LITTLE OR NO INFORMATION ABOUT OVERALL CONDITION, SO I NEVER KNOW, WHEN THE HANGER DOOR OPENS UP IF I AM GOING TO GET A GREEN SWEATER OR A LEGO SET !!
PEOPLE OFTEN ASK ME WHY I DO WHAT I DO. MAYBE I LIKE THE REVEAL.
WELL, WHEN I OPEN THE HANGER DOOR TODAY, I GOT A GREAT LEGO SET !!!!!
THE FIRST THING I NOTICED WAS THE GLASS. YOU CAN TELL A LOT ABOUT AN AIRPLANE FROM THE GLASS, BECAUSE IT IS EXPENSIVE AND A PAIN TO CHANGE, SO MOST PEOPLE ONLY DO IT WHEN THEY HAVE THIER AIRPLANE PAINTED. THE FACT THAT THIS AIRPLANE HAS FANTASTIC GLASS, INCLUDING THE THICK SIDE GLASS, FRAMELESS PILOTS WINDOW AND THE BDS SPEEDSLOPE WINDSHIELD, TELLS YOU THIS GUY DIDNT SKIMP.
GREAT GLASS MAKES YOU LOOK AT THE PAINT, AND THIS AIRPLANE LOOKS SHARP!!
CREAM OVERALL, WITH A NICE BRIGHT MEDIUM BLUE ACCENT LOOKS MODERN, NOT LIKE A NEW A-36, BUT AN UPDATED SCHEME AND APPEARANCE.
THE PAINT IS NOT FLAWLESS, AS I SAW WHEN I GOT RIGHT UP TO IT (THERE HAVE BEEN TOUCHUPS IN A FEW SPOTS OF THE CREAM, BUT THE COLOR USED WAS SPOT ON, AND THERE IS NO SPATTER OR ORANGE PEEL AS THE AREAS WERE TAPED OFF, NOT JUST FREEHAND.
THE OVERALL LOOK IS GREAT, AND I ONLY MENTION THE FEW TOUCHUP SPOTS FOR YOU SUPER FINICKY TYPES.
CLEVELAND WHEEL AND BRAKE UPGRADE, BECAUSE OBVIOUSLY THIS GUY WANTED IT ALL !!
INSIDE IS ALSO GREAT!!
THE DASH HAS BEEN COMPLETELY UPDATED, WITH A BERRYL D"SHANNON CONVERSION KIT, WITH CENTER STACK FOR THE AVIONICS, NEW CUSTOM PANELS LEFT AND RIGHT, AND ALL NEW SWITCHES, CIRCUIT BREAKERS, AND GUAGES IN CUSTOM LOWER PANELS LEFT AND RIGHT.
THE UPGRADE GOT RID OF THE PIANO KEYS, ADDED REAL, SEPARATED GEAR AND FLAP SWITCHES, AND BASICALLY UPGRADED THE DASH LAYOUT TO BETTER THAN A 1970"s A-36!
THE YOKE IS A NEW BLACK CYGNET UNIT, THE HEAVY RAM"S HORN STYLE, WITH CUSTOM BLACK LEATHER COVER AND DIGITAL CHRONOMETER.
THE SEATS ARE AWESOME, 2 -TONE LEATHER IN CREAM AND BLUE, AND THE SIDE PANELS WERE REDONE TO MATCH, AND LOOK GREAT.
THE BLUE CARPET LOOKS NEW, ON THE FLOOR, IN THE BAGGAGE COMPARTMENT AND ON THE BACK BULKHEAD.
THE LIGHT CREAM HEADLINER IS NOW A ONE PIECE MOLDED UNIT, NOT STRETCHED FABRIC, AND THE GREY PAINT AROUND THE WINDOW AND DOOR FRAMES WAS REPAINTED TO PERFECTION.
THE REAR SEATS HAVE BEEN UPGRADED TO THE N35 STYLE INDIVIDUAL BUCKETS, WITH TRACKS FOR INDIVIDUAL FOR AND AFT ADJUSTMENT, RECLINE, AND EASY REMOVAL, EITHER ONE OR BOTH, FOR MORE CARGO CAPABILITY.
BETTER WINDOWS THAN A V-35
SPEED SLOPE WINDSHIELD FOR MORE SPEED AND MORE QUIET
UPDATED DASH, SUPER NICE INTERIOR, COOL YOKE
SO WHAT DOESNT THIS AIRPLANE HAVE?
AN UNDAMAGED TAIL.
SO EVERYONE KNOWS THAT THE BONANZA WAS UPGRADED IN 1957 TO HANDLE THE UPGRADED SPEEDS FROM THE NEW FOR 1957 240 H.P. ENGINE, AND WITH ANTICIPATION OF MORE POWER IN THE YEARS TO FOLLOW.
WHICH MEANS THAT EVEN THOUGH THIS AIRPLANE HAD THE UPGRADED ENGINE, IT DOES NOT HAVE THE HIGHER NEVER EXCEED SPEED OF THE NEWER AIRPLANES.
EVERYONE KNOWS THIS STUFF, RIGHT?
WELL MAYBE NOT EVERYONE.
PART OF THE DASH RETROFIT WAS A NEW AIRSPEED INDICATOR, MARKED IN KNOTS, WITH A NEVER EXCEED TRUE AIRSPEED OF 176 KNOTS.
BUT THIS AIRPLANE HAS A CRUISE SPEED OVER 165 KNOTS, SO THE PILOT HAS TO BE VERY CAREFUL IN DESCENT.
THIS AIRPLANE WAS JUST PURCHASED BY A NEW OWNER FROM THE DETAIL ORIENTED GUY WHO DID ALL THESE MODS, AND WAS BEING FLOWN TO THE HOME AIRPORT OF THE NEW OWNER, WHEN THE FERRY PILOT PUSHED OVER TO DESCEND TO THE AIRPORT.
IN A SLICK, HIGH PERFORMANCE, UPGRADED AIRPLANE LIKE THIS, (OR MY MOONEY), YOU LEARN TO REDUCE POWER BEFORE YOU PUSH OVER.
HE DIDNT, AND WAS SURPRISED BY A BANG FROM THE TAIL, AFTER WHICH HE REDUCED POWER, AND FEELING NO ADDITIONAL ISSUES, LANDED SAFELY AND TAXIED IN.
IMAGINE THE LOOK ON THE NEW OWNERS FACE WHEN HE SAW WHAT HAD HAPPENED !!
THE TAILCONE IS WRINKLED ON THE SIDE AND BOTTOM AFT SKINS, MORE RIGHT THAN LEFT, AND NONE ON THE VERY TOP SKINS.
THE WRINKLES INCLUDE THE BULKHEAD WHERE THE AFT TAIL SKINS JOIN THE MID TAIL SKINS, AND ONLY THE RIGHT SIDE SKIN HAS A SMALL PUCKER BEYOND THIS.
THE REPAIR WILL REQUIRE REPLACEMENT OF THE AFT SKINS AND BULKHEADS, UP TO AND INCLUDING THE MID TAIL BULKHEAD, BUT THE MORE FORWARD PUCKER WILL PROBABLY POP ITSELF BACK INTO PLACE IF YOU REPLACE THE STRINGER IT IS ATTACHED TO, AS IT IS NOT WRINKLED AS SUCH.
AS I HAVE SEEN IN THE PAST, THE TAIL FEATHERS THEMSELVES, BOTH FIXED SURFACES AND BOTH RUDDERVATORS, LOOK GREAT!I LOOKED HARD, AT ALL 4 PIECES, AND CAN SEE NOW WRINKLING WHATSOEVER.
I CHECKED GOOD FOR CORROSION IN THE SURFACES AS WELL, AS I HAD GOOD LIGHT, AND THEY LOOK GOOD
WHAT IS NOT DAMAGED IS EVERYTHING ELSE !!
REMEMBER, THIS AIRPLANE DID NOT CRASH !!!!!!!
IT LANDED, UNDER CONTROL AT THE AIRPORT IT WAS HEADED FOR.
NOT A GEAR UP, AS SO OFTEN HAPPENS, SO ALL OF THE FRONT, MIDDLE AND BOTTOM OF THE AIRPLANE IS UNDAMAGED!
WE ARE SELLING THIS AS AN AIRFRAME ONLY, MINUS THE ENGINE, PROP AND ALL ENGINE ACCESSORIES.
THERE IS NO FIREWALL DAMAGE AND THE ENGINE WILL BE UNBOLTED PROPERLY, WITH NO CUT LINES OR CONTROLS, SO INSTALLATION OF YOUR CHOICE OF ENGINE WILL BE A SIMPLE BOLT-IN AFFAIR.
THERE IS NO DAMAGE TO THE FIREWALL OR THE KEEL !!
THIS AIRPLANE IS EQUIPPED WITH THE HAMMOCK AVIATION STAINLESS STEEL BATTERY BOX CONVERSION, AN THIS COMPLET CONVERSION IS MOUNTED AND INCLUDED.
THERE IS NO DAMAGE TO THE WINGS!
THERE IS NO DAMAGE TO THE FLAPS, OR AILERONS.
THERE ARE NO WINGTIPS INSTALLED ON THIS AIRPLANE (YES THEY WERE TIP TANKS, AND YES WE TOOK THEM OFF, AND NO, THEY ARE NOT INCLUDED)
THE MAIN LANDING GEAR, CLEVELAND WHEELS AND BRAKES AND THE MAIN GEAR DOORS (INNER AND OUTER) ARE UNDAMAGED
THIS AIRPLANE HAD BEEN EQUIPPED WITH THE UPGRADED IO-470N ENGINE, (NOT THE ORIGINAL E-225) AND THE FRONT END CONVERSION REQUIRED IS EXTENSIVE. THIS CONVERSION WAS PERFORMED BY HAMMOCK AVIATION, AT THEIR FACILITY IN TEXAS, WITH ALL THE PROPER PAPERWORK IN PLACE.
HAMMOCK AVIATION ALSO INSTALLED THE D"SHANNON INSTRUMENT PANEL CONVERSION AT THE SAME TIME, IN 2003.
OTHER GOODIES INSTALLED AND INCLUDED, WITH DOCUMENTATION, ARE:
KNOTS2U HIGH INTENSITY LANDING/TAXI LIGHTS
ALPHA AVIATION SHOULDER BELTS
DIGITAL VOLT/AMP GUAGE
THIS AIRFRAME IS VERY REPAIRABLE, AS ONLY THE AFT FUSELAGE MIDDLE AND LOWER SHOW WRINKLING, BUT INSTEAD OF TRYING TO BUY INDIVIDUAL SKINS, IT SEEMS LIKE A CUT OFF DONOR TAILCONE FROM THE WINDOWS AFT WOULD MAKE THE REPAIR JOB EASIER.
SO THERE ARE TWO VIABLE ALTERNATIVES FOR THIS AIRPLANE:
1) AS A PROJECT, WITH ALL THESE MODS, IT WILL MAKE A GREAT AIRPLANE AFTER REPAIR
2) AS A DONOR TO UPGRADE YOUR BONANZA, OR JUST FOR PARTS, FOR YOUR USE OR RESALE, AS YOU WISH.
EITHER WAY, THE VALUES HERE ARE OBVIOUS
LOCATED AT THE BATESVILLE, ARKANSAS AIRPORT, A SLEEPY LITTLE UNCONTROLLED AIRPORT WITH A HUGE 6,000 ft. RUNWAY.
