X-Plane 9 Beechcraft Staggerwing. There were 781 of these aircraft produced, with at least 250 still in existence, and 150 still in flying condition. Most of these are owned by airline pilots. The flight characteristics of this plane makes it unique. In flight it is stable down to 100 mph. Below 90, the solid feel becomes a bit soggy. The wing is very resistant to stall because the lower wing has incidence, and the top one does not, so that the lower wings stalls first. This makes it hard to stall altogether. A very classy aircraft, with performance bettering that of most modern private planes, it represents the "Golden Age of Aviation." By Heinz Dziurowitz.
