Beech C-45H Flight

Well, we had another trip on the “Chow Hound” last Saturday

Retired airline pilot Bob Trinke does local trips out of Plymouth airport with his vintage Twin Beech airplane.

The usual gig is to take about a half hour flight to Martha’s vineyard for breakfast and it’s a great step back in time to fly on this well traveled plane.

These planes date back to world war 2 as a transport workhorse and the airframe was pretty much rebuilt in the early 50’s and the engines done as needed.

Sort of the George Washington hatchet story : it’s original except for the 2 replacement handles and 1 new head.
