Beech D18S PH-UBX has been rescued from a car dealer/junk yard where it had been serving as eye-catching signage for the enterprise for at least 40 years.

Originally serving the Dutch military after World War II, the plane last flew in 1965 when it was assigned the the Dutch flight training program’s Rijksluchtvaartschool, later being unceremoniously hoisted as an advert in the early seventies.

The Arnhem War Museum in the Netherlands plans to restore the plane, an unexpected happy turn of events for this deteriorated and neglected piece of aviation history.
