Hi Roy, just another minor correction (AGAIN ???).
N754 has a Garrett engine, not a P&W.
It was done "In house".
THe PT-6 is a reverse flow engine and has the exhausts on the front of the nacelle, the Garrett is a straight flow engine and has the exhaust at the rear.
(BTW, the Garrett engine has been renamed, but I can never remember who owns it now, it will always be a Garrett to me)

Thank you Bill.
Note that the cockpit glazing is different than on other Turbo Beavers.

Hi Guys,

I know I'm a Beaver addict but even I have to admit that N754's just about the ugliest aircraft I've ever seen!

Hi Tasse,

not even it's mother could love that thing!

If something looks right (Hawker Hunter, MV Agusta F4 motorcycle etc) then it usually is right.
