This photograph by Richard Maclean at
1957 shows the Beech 18 in the role
for which it
designed.....namely that of executive transport. Thiess
Brothers, a large
contractor used if for ferrying top brass around. This particular
as a Beech
SNB-2 Navigator for the US Navy with BuAer No 39194, but
nicely it looked like it had been purpose-built as a C-18S.
In 1958 it
to Connellan Airways
of Alice Springs, N.T. becoming VH-CLG. It is currently
at the Queensland Air Museum at
Caloundra, roughly 100 km north of Brisbane.
