Beech 99 Round Acrylic Ornament
The Beechcraft Model 99 was developed during the mid-1960s to meet the growing need for modern, fast, commuter airliners for smaller airlines and markets.
Incorporating key design components from the earlier Beech Queen Air model, the type emerged as an unpressurized 15-passenger mini-airliner, powered by two Pratt & Whitney PT-6 turboprop engines giving a cruise speed of 240 miles per hour (380 kph). Following first airline service in 1968, a total of 239 were built at the Beech facilities in Wichita, Kansas through 1986.
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.
