On Sep-09-16 at 14:16:29 PDT, seller added the following information:Update 2 - 9 September 2016: AD 63-25-01 is CURRENT on this airplane. Last MPI was conducted 25 July 2012 @ 3011.6 hours. See photos for the log entry. On Sep-09-16 at 15:57:06 PDT, seller added the following information:Someone asked if I would consider trades. Sorry, no trades / no owner financing. This is a straight forward sale. Thank you for asking :-)On Sep-10-16 at 19:04:01 PDT, seller added the following information:Update 4 - 10 September 2016: A bidder asked me to clarify the details of the aileron trim system. This airplane is equipped with T-34 ailerons. This installation provides a traditional aileron trim system versus the spring tension system. The blueprint for the installation has been added to the photos and the approved Form 337 is part of the airplane"s records and available for review during a pre-buy inspection.
Update 5 - 30 September 2016: We have a Facebook page for this airplane, but for some reason, the link to the page will not copy "live" onto the ad. For those of you on Facebook, please search Gorgeous 1947 Beech Bonanza For Sale on the Facebook home page and it will take you to the airplane"s page.
Update 6 - 30 September 2016: Please note we are offering a low time, no prop strike spare E-185-8 engine as a separate transaction from the auction. The current engine on this airplane runs GREAT, but prospective buyers have expressed concerns about the 1289 hours SMOH on the engine. FWIW, the average light airplane flies 50 hours per year, meaning this engine has another four years of flying at that utilization rate before it reaches TBO. But for those of you who really want a low time engine, we have a low time engine that we will happily sell you.
Update 7 - 30 September 2016: Several prospective buyers have asked some very good questions about the airplane. Here, in a "Q & A" format, are the most common questions asked:
Q & A:
Here are some of the questions people have had about the airplane and my answers.Q: Does AD 63-25-01 apply to this airframe?
A: Yes. The last MPI was conducted on 25 July 2012 @ 3011.6 hours TTSN. Q: When was the last annual conducted?
A: December 2015. The annual is valid through December 2016. If you would like a fresh annual, simply bring an IA to the pre-purchase inspection. A thorough pre-purchase inspection should encompass all the activities normally conducted during an annual inspection – AD Note search and compliance, gear retraction test, compression test, etc. Q: When was the last 91.411 test conducted on the Altimeter and Altitude reporting system?
A: We are having the 91.411 certification conducted this month – September 2016.Q: Does the airplane have any damage history?
A: There is one Form 337, dated 16 July 1948 documenting repairs to the right wing that appears to be the result of some type of mishap. Q: When was the airplane last weighed?
A: 22 March 2010. The equipment list and Weight & Balance have been updated since then, with the latest revision dated 23 September 2014. At that time, the pertinent weights, CG, and Moment numbers were:
Empty Weight: 1693 pounds
Useful Load: 807 poundsQ: When were the fuel cells last replaced?
A: The left fuel cell was replaced 1 November 2013 at 3046.5 hours TTSN. There is no record of the right cell being replaced. It does not leak and appears to be in excellent condition. The auxiliary (baggage) tank is an aluminum tank, not a rubber cell.
On Sep-30-16 at 14:33:39 PDT, seller added the following information:Another excellent question: Was burn testing / certification done on the interior materials? YES. It"s in the airframe logs. Current date: 2016-10-08
