STEP ABOARD THE VERSATILE LITTLE BEECHCRAFT TRANSPORT AND RIDE LIKE A GENERAL
|C-45F EXPEDITER “BUCKET OF BOLTS”
COMMEMORATIVE AIR FORCE The C-45 is a military transport version of the Beechcraft Model 18, which began its 32 year production lifespan in 1937. The C-45 was first ordered by the U.S. Army Air Corps as a staff transport, but a navigator training version, the AT-7, and a float-version, AT-7A, soon followed. It was further modified in 1941 as an advanced trainer, AT-11, complete with a small bomb bay, transparent nose, and two .30 caliber machine guns and used for bombardier and gunnery training. The final wartime variant was the photo-recon F-2. The Navy and Marine Corps used the versatile aircraft as the JRB and SNB.
History of WW2DB
My name is C. Peter Chen, I am the founder and editor of World War II Database, and I thank you for visiting this website. When this project started, it was no more than my personal notebook in which I kept notes and copies of photographs about WW2. With a relational database model, I was able to connect people, events, photographs, and other elements of history with ease, and the content of this database quickly grew. In Oct 2004, a year after I founded the consulting firm Lava Development, LLC., I began building the WW2DB as a public website for Lava to achieve two goals simultaneously: To share my notes with fellow military history enthusiasts and to showcase the technical capabilities of my consulting firm. From this initiative born the foundations of the website that eventually opened to the public on 28 Dec 2004.
