Flew N180Z for the US Forest Service 1974-1978. Sweet aircraft. Used it to carry pax as well as drop Smokejumpers out of the North Cascades Smokejumper Base in Winthrop, WA.

Don't know if the below image will come thru. It is a post card (3"x5") image of Beech Model 99, Serial Number U-1. It was used by Beech as a demonstration model for subsequent production sales. In addition to the nose baggage compartment, a 'belly box' was added to increase capacity for large items like golf clubs or skis. Engines were Pratt & Whitney PT-6.

I flew the Beech 99 for Conoco Oil Company in the late 70's on a corporate shuttle. What a workhorse, very relieable, would carry the load and was very stable. We flew 19 passengers between Ponca City, Tulsa, Wichita and Houston for many years. The aircraft was fast and comfortable. It's large baggage compartment in the nose was A real plus.
