When Beechcraft’s original V-tail Bonanza debuted in 1947, it must have looked like a spacecraft compared with the fabric-covered, strut-braced machines that made up much of the fleet. The sleek, all-metal Bonanza raised pilots’ expectations regarding the performance potential of general aviation aircraft and drove the industry toward more advanced materials and construction methods.
Today the V-tails remain popular even though they have been out of production for 40 years. This is especially true of later models like this 1973 example. Their all-around performance and comfort make them strong candidates for personal transport and long-distance travel. Their tails also help them stand out on the ramp. You are unlikely to mistake a V-tail Bonanza for any other aircraft.
The Bonanza for sale here 5,810 hours on its airframe, 422 on the engine and 645 on the propeller. Its updated panel includes a King KMA 24 Audio Panel, Avydine IFD 550 GPS/Nav/Com, King KX 155 Nav/Com, Avydine AXP 322 Transponder Garmin G5 EFIS, Garmin G5 HSI and an EDM 900 engine monitor.
