The Beech 18 prototype with first flight on January 15, 1937. Traded in to Beech for a Beech 18S (c/n 294) in August 1939. To various companies before joining the RCAF as 8650 in September 1941. It served until March 1945. In May 1945, PP-XAM was reserved, but the sale never finalized. To other others (incl. for a presidential campaign for Kefauver 1952-153). Converted to a Beech 18B between 1948 and 1952. To N15810 in April 1956. Withdrawn from use and stored from the mid-1960's. Badly vandalized between 1970 and 1982. Repaired in 1990 and took up N15810 again. Reportedly active in 2017.

Clearly an advertising shoot with daisy-fresh 'overnight passengers' disembarking from a TWA 'Luxury Sky-Sleeper'. Although the 'widebody' DC-3 was expensively redesigned from the DC-2 as a sleeper plane, it never became popular as such. TWA's DC-3B already had a smaller, convertible sleeper cabin, with fewer upper windows than the original DST. NC17312 was commandeered by the USAAF as a C-84, but returned to TWA in 1943.

One of my earlier photos, taken in 1937 and showing an early F3F from the initial production batch for the US Navy. In those Black and White photography days we always preferred a Number 10 striped plane because the black always looked best on the finished photo. Red (Number 1) would come out dark but never as dramatic.
