Hello, all David, Jan,

Well, if the Twin Beech (Beech 18, C-45, At-11 et. al.) was shot
down in early 1942, if it was a civilian B-18 this should be
easy to check, as in 1942, there were only a few hundred less
than 250, built  at that point, as civil aircraft.

Also the B-18 was, along with the Lockeeed model 11 & 12, a
popular corporate trasport. However, the flight restrictions
that were in place at the time, would  have made the movements
of civil aircraft difficult at best.

I have never heard of this, and have several sources on the B-18
and look like model 11 & 12. I'll do some checking.

Also, I have flown one, great aircraft. One of those at the
point where real airplanes begin. (along with DeHavilland
Beavers and Otters)
