....and 1 less than a B-24? Answer: why, a B-23, of course! I just picked up my new-to-me 1969 Beechcraft Musketeer Custom III (aka B-23) yesterday and brought her home. I purchased the plane in this thread https://www.pilotsofamerica.com/community/threads/1969-beech-musketeer-b23.128418/ but it's taken a long time to actually get the plane home. We inked the purchase agreement back in late Feb, but it was many weeks before the shop could do the pre-buy and then fix a few squawks. The sale was finally closed in early June and I decided to convert the pre-buy into an annual, which also took a long time and had a few squawks to fix. Mrs. Half Fast and I drove to Defuniak Springs to pick up the plane on Aug 3, it having come out of annual, but during pre-flight inspection I found three more squawks: fuel guages not working, electric trim not working, and pitot heat not working. It took a couple of weeks to get those fixed, then the weather was not conducive to flying (as in tropical storm and hurricane wx). I was finally able to get the plane this week. Took her up for a test flight on Thu, then flew her back to her new nest at KGIF (Winter Haven, FL) yesterday. The flight home was, uh, entertaining, involving skirting around some difficult weather and needing to set down in Crystal River for a while to let things improve a bit. But she's finally home! The whole purchase process has been long and tangled but.... I learned that the most important thing in purchasing a plane is to buy from a great seller. Forum member @zayerpaul was terrific through the entire time, extremely helpful and accomodating all the way. I'm very thankful to him for all his help. I'm looking forward to lots of years and many hours with this plane.
