I bought this airplane for parts, but thought I'd see if I could get it flying.

Probably worth $80k when you are done with low time engines. I assume you are doing this for something to do :D

probably the cheapest way to get that thing flying is to load it into a cargo plane!

Maybe I should be posting this under "HAVE YOU EVER DONE ANYTHING REALLY STUPID". I have a complete airplane. I've removed the oil pan from one of the engines and the cam and lifters look great. Everything else looked nice and clean. Replacing the upper wing skins is potentially a big stumbling block ,as the engine nacelles should be removed. I figured this project would teach me sheet metal skills and patience. These unique airplanes are disappearing fast. I doubt if there are twenty flying worldwide. I'd like to hear your thoughts on the attrition of our Baron and Bonanzas. We are lucky that our airplanes are still supported and that we have had the chance to experience flying them. I will turn sixty this year, and have seen our airplanes when they were new and plentiful. By the time I become a really old man, I think it will be rare to see many flying. I am sentimental of these airplanes and the period they represent. I own several Beechcrafts and my efforts at keeping them flying is my way of slowing the inevitable.

To get this airplane flying again will take two things. Time and Money. If you have a surplus of both, by all means.......proceed. Just remember...........PICTURES!!!!

I think many of us wish we had the time and skills to do stuff like this, so we enjoy vicarious threads like this one. More power to you, and keep posting those pictures! :clap: And you're right: until Braly & co feel comfortable that there will be a drop-in replacement for 100LL and resume work on the TN Baron, a small number of TCs is all there is.

Bob, I say, "go baby, go!" Forget the naysayers - they don't get it it. I do. This isn't about money or ROI or anything other than the satisfaction of bringing what was left for scrap back to life. If you can do this, have a great time, and not affect your lifestyle then I say go for it and never look back. My hat's off to you during the whole process.
