OMG...I used this sound track to open up my weekly radio show for years. With the awesome editing and aerial camera work of THIS video, the theatre of my mind will never be the same.
WOW!It's real a great airplane, just like from future.
no idea, can't see flash like the other 30% of people using the internet on a tablet or smartphone...
time for a website overhaul.
What a shame. Such an elegant aircraft! I remember seeing one in person back when I was in flight school at Palwaukee airport (now called Chicago executive) at Priester Aviation. It had an elegant presence.
The last time I saw one was in Aspen I think. Maybe it was Palm Springs?? I suddenly can't remember what airport it was- but there were a few of them grouped together. The story I heard was that Beech purchased all the aircraft back- but one owner got a few of them to cannibalize parts from and still flies his on a regular basis.
I flew a somewhat similar aircraft, the Avanti P180. Of course it is not the same, but in many ways it is similar. Both have a forward wing, both have pusher propellers.. but they are very different in many ways. No winglets on the P180, and the P180 has a T-Tail.
I would love to fly in a Starship someday - feel how she handles, and compare it to the P180's characteristics. I assume the Starship flies true like the King Airs do. Of all the planes I have ever flown, jets and props - the King Air is the most honest, solid, predictable aircraft.
