Have a BE-A23A, 1967 Beech Musketeer Custom III, been in the family for 51 years. It is a three generation aircraft, piloted by my Dad, my brother and myself, and my two sons.

I used to love flying the Super III version with CS prop but I believe the other versions were underpowered. Dare not bounce on landing though.

I learned to fly in a Cherokee 140 I owned 1/3 share, and flew that for several years, also flew Cessna 152 and 172 club planes, then sold my share and purchased my '63 Musketeer. I flew that for 17 years, sold it 19 years ago for more than I'd paid for it, to buy materials for the house we were building. BIG MISTAKE! I was unable to fly again until this fall, when I was able to afford to buy another plane. I again chose a '63 Musketeer since it was such a delight to fly. Fast enough and able to carry a good load for a long range. The farthest I flew in one hop was 6.5 hours, over 8oo miles, full fuel (60 Gallons) with two adults (Before I gained a little weight) and two kids (12 & 15)for a trip to Florida. The plane has so much room and can carry a lot (almost 1,000 pounds useful)and cruises 120 MPH easily. Sure, I'd like a Cherokee 6 or equal, but this is everything a low/middle income person really needs. They are truly a bargain to own.

Owned a B-24 Sierra N24PQ for a bit and flew out of Richmond...some for business trips to Boston, NY, SC...or for pleasure up to the Vineyard or down south...and over to the Eastern Shore during hunting season. Was a pleasure to fly...rock solid airplane; especially after converting to a 3 blade prop at the last TBO.

I remember having to take a retractable Mouseketeer to the Grand Canyon because the owner of the 210 I intended to take needed to use it. I cycled the gear a few times because I didn't think it was up before I realized everything was normal it was just a slug.

Nice big cabin though and they tried to make it look a lot like a Bonanza inside.

Truly a family airplane.We had N5073T for 20 yrs.

We used to call it the Mouseketeer since it was basically a 2 seat airplane posing as a 4 seater. I remember one HOT day when it took the better part of a 9800' runway to get airborne with 4 adults on board. NOT overpowered!

In my HS Aviation class I got to fly out of Wiley Post airport several times in a Sundowner. Mr. Carter, my instructor, was a retired USAF pilot. A fine gentleman and an enjoyable experience, although 1 adult and 3 HS students barely fit in the cabin.
