You mean the Bonanzas? I'm getting close to 50 from the Vintage Bonanza Group on Facebook, not to mention all of my own of all sorts of planes. Here are a couple of my vintage ones.

The old photos from the 60's were scanned from 35mm slides. Here are some more recent digital ones.

The first one is a favourite because I have flown it. See all of these and hundreds more on my flickr.com album, link below.

This is one of my more unique photos, used in a few publications, as it is the aircraft missing as Flt MH370. The photo was taken in 2011.

Modified from the civilian Beech Model 36 Bonanza under the Pave Eagle II program, the 27 QU-22Bs delivered to the U.S. Air Force contained several changes for military service. The QU-22B carried a large generator above the engine to power its electronic equipment and additional fuel in extended wing tip tanks for increased range. Its remote control equipment allowed the QU-22B to be flown directly by an onboard pilot or as an unmanned drone.

half an hour with photoshop?

I dont see any reason why anybody would go through the effort to make this in photoshop. It is well within the capabilities of both aircraft and i have no doubt that it would be real.

This would not have been an easy shot to get.[ATTACH=full]53526[/ATTACH]

Edit: Oops!. Posted about Mark Albery below, but from deanfi's post I see it's a different Beech 18, and RV-8. My mistake, however I'll leave the links as it's an interesting story. What are the odds of getting the wrong RV-8 and Beech 18 combination?

 

There's a background story to this. Mark Albery flew his RV-8 from the UK to the US in 2017 accompanied by a Beech 18.
