In this centennial Anniversary Year of Powered Flight, it is fitting that one of the most important aircraft ever has its story told in full.

Beech 18: A Civil & Military History details the 12 civil models and 50 military variants as well as over 70 modifications with photos illustrating each. Supplementing the technical details are personal accounts from pilots, crew and owners putting the reader in the left seat on some of the more interesting Twin Beech adventures.

This book has:
 - Over 500 pages
 - Over 730 photos
 - 350 color photos
 - Index of 8,000 civil registrations
 - Complete index; people, models
 - Bibliography: 330 articles & sources

The photo captions alone account for 35,000 words. U.S. Navy and AAF/USAF Model 18 listings allow for the identification of the Beechcraft model for almost any of the 7,000 military models.

All facets of the Twin Beech are covered, such as the complete history of spar problems and cures starting with the first civil failure in December 1947.
