Civilian Beech 18S

Carlo Ferrari's Beech 18 is a remarkable example of this twin-engine 'taildragger'. First flown in 1937, the type saw extensive service during World War Two as a trainer and light transport (amongst other duties). After the war, the Beech 18 was a well-known business aircraft, perhaps the King Air of its day. Carlo's G18S, which has made appearances on television and in movies, will be displayed in the static park in its striking bare-metal finish.

“It was an epic spectacle, as magical as anything you've ever seen in the West End, and as loud as anything you've ever heard at Knebworth.”

Jeremy Clarkson, Television Presenter

“All the thrills, excitement and noise of a Grand Prix, but in the air!”

Jenson Button, Formula 1 Racing Driver
