Mitsubishi MU-2   N224FW                         (c/n  MU2-008)

                                     In the late 1950s Mitsubishi Industries of Japan desgned a twin turbo prop executive aircraft
                                     powered by two Turnomeca Astazou engines.  A factory was later established in San Angelo,
                                     Texas to produce this machine in the U.S.  A few MU-2As were built with the French engines
                                     but most were of the MU-2B variety whereby Garrett TPE 331 engines replaced the Astazou
                                     engines.  This is an early one (actually the eighth one built) seen at Santa Monica in 1966 when
