1947 Beech Staggerwing G17S
After spending much of its life here in Minnesota, this rare 'G' model Staggerwing was recently sold to a new owner in New Zealand.  Before preparing her for shipment to her new home, the owner wants us to give her some new fabric with a fresh coat of paint.  Her new owner is excited to show her off over the skies of New Zealand!
