The grand prize this year is an absolutely fabulous 1948 Beechcraft Bonanza 35 we call “BB8”. She’s a honey from the golden era of post-war civilian production and she’s been nicely refurbished. Or, take the cash option of $35,000! Proceeds go toward securing a permanent museum home that is accessible by the public. Plunk down your $50 for a ticket and you will be a hero to us and perhaps the new owner of this dream machine!
