detailed took at the Model 17 during 1930's & Through WWII. Includes comprehensive history of Walter Beech & designer Ted Wells. detailed scale drawing. At the height of the Great Depression, aircraft executive Walter H. Beech and T.A. “Ted” Wells joined forces to collaborate on a project many considered foolhardy—a large, powerful, and fast biplane built specifically for the business executive. The Beech Model 17, popularly known as the “Staggerwing” (the name comes from the top wing being set, or staggered, behind the bottom wing) was first flown on November 4, 1932, setting the standard for private passenger airplanes for many years to come.

I knew the author, and he presented me with a signed copy of the first ever printing in 1967. His expertise meant he truly researched the subject, thus this book is a history of this marvellous aircraft. I know of none better. ( )
