                                   In 1970 Texas International purchased five Beech 99s to serve the smller lower Rio Grande area,
                                   since cost effective service to these small communities was impossible using the Convairs.  They
                                   operated the Beechs for seven or eight years.   Bob Garrard shot this one at George Bush Inter-
                                   continental Airport at Houston (IAH) in July of 1970, just after the aircraft had been re-registered
                                   from N4155A.
