What do we have here then.......

Observed being unloaded into a hangar at Ardmore 09 January was this 1947 Beech 17 Staggerwing NC80316 as seen here at Oshkosh 2012.

Looking at the FAA database freely accessible via the internet it shows the ownership as being that of Kiwi Lion Ltd who also operated Beech Baron N254F based at Ardmore and are associated with the return to flight of the Hawker Tempest Mk II!


  1. It was printed in a recent issue of Classic Wings magazine that the owner's name is Eric Hertz.

  2. Thanks Handbag, that is quite correct.
