EAA AirVenture Oshkosh 2019: Warbirds - Cessna and Beechcraft Twins

The Aero Experience continues our coverage of EAA AirVenture Oshkosh 2019, sponsored by Elite Aviation, with this look at two classic twins. The first example, a 1943 UC-78C light personnel transport, is named Class of '43 and is regularly featured in our warbirds coverage. The second aircraft, a Beechcraft AT-11 Kansan named Tantalizing Takeoff, is a bombardier trainer version of the multi-role Beech Model 18 series. Both types gave valuable service in support of the Allied Forces during World War II, and many served in post-war secondary military service missions and in civilian training and transport roles for decades thereafter.
