Beech T-34A Mentor    N4904X            (c/n  G-55)


                                              It would be virtually impossible today, I would suspect, to encounter a Beech Mentor
                                              which was not dressed up as a "warbird".  However, when they first were released to
                                              the civilian market, owners tended to paint them up like mini Travel Aire's or similar.  
                                              They were then known as the Beech Model A45.  This one was at Fullerton Municipal
                                              Airport, just east of L.A. in 1960.    This aircraft is still currently registered (to an owner
                                              in Wichita, its birthplace).
