On Display – Under Restoration

This Beech Jet Mentor is another of the museum’s one-of-a-kind aircraft. The airplane is a prototype that was in competition for a military trainer contract. It was pitted against the Cessna T-37, also on display at the museum, which won the contract. Because the Mentor was not purchased by the military, only one plane was constructed.
