A Tale of Two Beechcraft 1978 V35B N2032E (D-10170)

Michael Stanton-Hicks, Chardon, Ohio

This is a cautionary tale, one that emphasizes both the pitfalls and advantages of advice received that can at the time go both ways. Around 2006, I was in the market for and had found what seemed to be an ideal Bonanza in Trade-A-Plane as far as its specifications were concerned. I began a dialogue with the owner, Chuck Graves of Graves Aircraft, the FBO at El Reno, Oklahoma (KRQO), where the aircraft was based.
