The G-17 Staggerwing is the final civilian variant of the Model 17 Staggerwing series of biplanes by Beechcraft. Designed as a quick, roomy transport for business executives, the Staggerwing’s most distinctive feature is its negative staggered wing configuration, wherein the lower wing is mounted slightly ahead of the front. This unconventional configuration gave the pilot visibility and at the same time reduced the interference on its fabric-covered wings. The staggered wings, coupled with its then-revolutionary conventional landing gear, smooth lines, and powerful Pratt & Whitney 9-cylinder engines, made it the VIP transport of choice across America. A total of 20 G-17 Staggerwings were produced from 1946s to 1948, with several models still existing to this day.
