Beech 1900 Round Acrylic Ornament
Building on Beechcraft's experience during the 1960s and 1970s with the company's Model 99, the 1900 was developed in the early 1980s for the fast-growing 19-seat commuter airliner market.
Essentially a lengthened version of the Beech King Air business aircraft, the 1900 was designed to provide more passenger and freight space than competing types. The pressurized cabin was normally equipped for 17-19 passengers with a large rear baggage hold, and the two Pratt & Whitney PT-6 turboprop engines provided a cruise speed of 300 miles per hour (500 kph). Following first airline service in 1984, nearly 700 were built across several variants at the Beech facilities in Wichita, Kansas through 2002.
An artistic interpretation of the aircraft’s side and top views is laser-engraved with exacting detail onto a round acrylic crystal ornament, measuring approximately 3.4 inches in diameter, with a material thickness of 1/8 inch. For best display clarity, the design is engraved as a reversed mirror image on one side of the ornament, so that it can be viewed with proper alignment on the opposite side.
As a gift, or as a treat for yourself, these are a perfect way to add your favorite airplanes of the past to your today! Use them to decorate for the holidays, or to brighten up your desk, office, or special area of your home or work space all year long.
