      1943 BEECHCRAFT D-17S STAGGERWING

      In 1943, the US Army received 13 UC-43 airplanes with the powerful 450hp R-985-17 engine. N79484 was among them and went into service July 21st, 1943 as 43-10869. In 1963, the airplane received its civil registration.

      During 2000, Michael J. Gimes from Lancaster, CA completed an in-depth and comprehensive restoration of the aircraft. Since 2016, the airplane has been maintained and cared for by the current owner. The Staggerwing is kept in a hangar in Tennessee with a professional mechanic, specializing in antique airplane maintenance taking care of it.

      N79484 is in stunning condition with more than $200,000 spent on it over the last few years to make it one of the nicest flying D-17S’s today.

      The Staggerwing is based at M91 and available for Inspection by appointment.
