The Beechcraft Bonanza is an American general aviation aircraft introduced in 1947, and has been in continuous production longer than any other airplane in history. More than 17,000 Bonanzas of all variants have been built. At the end of World War II, two all-metal aircraft emerged, the Model 35 Bonanza and the Cessna 195, that represented very different approaches to the premium-end of the postwar civil aviation market. The Cessna 195 was little more than a continuation of prewar technology; the 35 Bonanza, however, was more like the fighters developed during the war, featuring an easier-to-manage horizontally-opposed six cylinder engine, a rakishly streamlined shape, retractable nosewheel undercarriage and low-wing configuration. The Model 35 featured retractable landing gear, and its signature V-tail, which made it both efficient and the most distinctive private aircraft in the sky.
This specific Beechcraft Bonanza is the V-35, which has higher take-off weight than its predecessor, and is equipped with a single-piece windshield and optional turbocharged TSIO-520-D engine. 873 were built.
