Aircraft Highlights

Beech D18S N80388, NAVY MODEL TC-45J, RC-45J - Make best offer 

D18S was the first new commercial Beechcraft to come off the production line after the end of World War II. It was the first of 1,800 civil models built for the post-war market (D18S, E18S, G18S & H18), all built by Beech at Wichita Kansas. The “S” suffix indicated it was powered by the reliable 450hp P&W Wasp Junior series. The first D18S c/n A-1 was first flown in October 1945 at Beech field, Wichita.

On 5 December 1945 the D18S received CAA Approved Type Certificate No.757, the first to be issued to any postwar aircraft. The first delivery of a new model D18S to a customer departed Wichita the following day.

From 1947 the D18C model was available as an executive version with more powerful 525hp Continental R-9A radials, also offered as the D18C-T passenger transport approved by CAA for feeder airlines. Beech assigned c/n prefix "A-" to D18S production, and "AA-" to the small number of D18Cs. Total production of the D18S and D18C models was 1,035 aircraft.

Airframe, avioncs and engines upgraded and rebuilt recently
