Beech Staggerwing NC18785 - Assembly

The Beechcraft Model 17 Staggerwing is an American biplane with an atypical negative wing stagger (the lower wing is farther forward than the upper wing). It first flew in 1932.

This 1938-built Beechcraft Staggerwing was bought by a new Belgian owner during 2017. It was dismantled and shipped to the port of Antwerp.

R.A.R. was contacted to assemble the aircraft.
