Beech D17S       NC67550                         (c/n 6717)


                                     First introduced in 1933, the Beech Model 17 four-seat cabin biplane was built in fairly large
                                     numbers and in a variety of versions over the next decade.  All versions are similar and noticeable
                                     for the negative stagger of the biplane wings  The most common variant is the D17S, powered by
                                     a throaty 450 hp Pratt & Whitney R-985 engine.  This example was photographed at Santa Paula
                                     Airport in Southern California in 2000.
