Abandoned Airplanes {Marana Az}

THIS Plane was not abandoned. Some guy had fixed it up real pretty. It impressed Dad.


Aircraft Engine Box, Spelled Centre right

Beech 18 [?] Adorable.

THIS Was Dwight D Eisenhower’s Air Force One. This plane! {A Lockheed Constellation} And it’s just sitting here, in a rural airport on Arizona, rusting:

  THESE Are Beechcraft Starships, made 53 but only sold 11. The rest until rented out to executives, that business just wasn’t making enough money. So they scrapped them, and a couple of guys picked some up cheap. Then stored them here. 

BONUS: For return readers: 

This plane is not abandoned, the owners were restoring it. I have no idea what it is.
