|A Bonanza and a WarBird|
On the other side, is a Beechcraft Bonanza. Designed by a team after WWII, the model 35 was a relatively fast, low-wing monoplane at a time when most light private aircraft were still made of wood and fabric. The Model 35 had retractable landing gear and a V-tail which made it both efficient and the most distinctive private aircraft in the sky. The prototype 35 Bonanza made its first flight in December 1945, with the first aircraft debuting as 1947 models. In 1982, the V-tail Bonanza was dropped from production, though more than 6,000 V-tail models are still flying today.
