Thread: Beechcraft Starship

  1. #1

    Default Beechcraft Starship

    Only 53 ever made.....here's 15 in this shot. Elseware in this boneyard are 16 more. total of 31. More than half of the aircraft ever produced are on this site, awaiting demolition. (just watched a history channel special about boneyards) According to this website http://www.bobscherer.com/Pages/Starship.htm there are only 4 in active service. The host of this website was interviewed for the history channel special.

    that's a link to one that appears to be in working order.

    Aarg! I read this thread yesterday, remembered the shape of the Starship and was very surprised and happy to have spotted another one at Aspen. ONLY to find out upon posting my find in this thread that somebody else was fast. Congratulations!

    It is just the aircrafts name, nothing "flys" in space.

    I┤m not an expert, but could those be 2 more of the 53 Starships at Merril Field, Anchorage?

    Burt Rutan used one as a chase plane when they launched spaceship one. They said it was the only privately owned starship left - Beech tried to get it back, but the owner refuses to sell it.

    Here it is at Oshkosh:
