This footage walks us through a C-45 “Bucket of Bolts” start up at the Cleburne Airshow. This plane is a military transport version of the Beechcraft Model 18 which started production in 1937.
The C-45 was first ordered by the United States Army Air Corps to be used as staff transport, but it had been constantly modified throughout its 32-year production. While 9,338 were produced, there are only about 250 that are still flying.
Overall, great video, gorgeous plane, and we absolutely love the sound of those engines!
