Looking good there Bob. Brings back memories of mine. Don't you have a later serial number 56 also?

I do. Number 71. I've fixed most of the hail damage and it looks much better. It is low time and has the potential to be a beautiful airplane.

That's what I remembered. Mine was TG-76

When I was a boy, Dad took us to the Beech factory to see them build Baron and Bonanzas. The B55 and C55 were mixed together on the factory floor and the Bonanzas were on their own line. I wonder if the 56TC's were separate and if a batch of ser. nos. went together since production was so low and orders intermittent?

I just found this, just now. It makes me want to cry.
This is the 56TC I spent most time in. Navigator, camera operator and pilot.
Anyone here think it can be rebuilt?

The caption reads: "VH-SUV Beech 56TC Baron (MSN TG-53) owned by Polytechnic West, at Jandakot Airport – Sat 19 March 2016.
Formerly owned by Airesearch Mapping Pty Ltd of Sunnybank, Queensland, this aircraft was officially withdrawn from use in 2003 and acquired by Polytechnic West at Jandakot Airport for use as an instructional airframe.

Yes it can be rebuilt but everyone here will tell you not to do it, no matter how much you want to. I say, if you've got the time and money, rebuild 'em all. Make sure to sump the tanks and don't ask about gear speeds....

no way, no how, should you consider a practice tool from an maintenance engineering school as anything that could fly again.

I would be interested in it! My theory on these is get them while you can! It can be rebuilt from the ground up! Look at the marvelous work Bob B is doing! He has gone through every square inch of that airplane right by the book. Watching Bob's process I wouldn't be concerned about putting this back together.

The fuel this airplane must of had in a ferry tank would be horrendous to make journey.

I finally started work again on no. 43. Here I am installing the induction housing and intake runners. The vacuum pump, tac generator and starter have also been attached. Assembling the engine off the airplane is a lot easier, things are out in the open.

This is the first time I've seen the 56TC engine de-cowled. Why all of the empty space behind it? I always knew they sat pretty far forward, but never knew why. Is the engine/prop assembly so much lighter than the normal Baron engine that it needs the leverage for CG like a turbine does? It seems crazy to me.

Turbo and associated gear rides back behind the engine.

Ah. That does fill it up rather well.

Thanks.

Tom, That is an insightful question. I don't know. I hate seeing fine machinery destroyed. During my travels with XB-COW, I haven't seen any other Turbo Barons on the ramp. There aren't many out flying.

Forgive my ignorance but what is XB-COW?

Also any updates on this amazing restoration?

His 56TC when it was in the Mexican civil aircraft registry ("XB").

Easy to find once you know how to search for it. Looks like you've been here on BT for just a short time, so I hope the links are helpful. :cheers:
