1/81 285 Aurora Aero Commander 680
Plastic Model Kit, Box Condition: Poor
Aurora of Holland issue. Still the only plastic kit of this venerable corporate workhorse. The kit has never been started. It has been inventoried complete with all parts and includes decals and instructions. NOTE: although all parts are present, one blade is broken off at a hub and that blade is missing. All other parts are fine. The box is very rough and has a long tear and missing litho on one long side. The Aero Commander was a state-of-the-art twin engine light transport from the early 1960s. It was built by Aero Design and Engineering Co. of Bethany, Oklahoma. It was the first twin engine aircraft to be used by the President of the United States and served in this capacity in the early 1960s. This high performance 5 to 7 place was popular with business travelers and had a range of 1,050 miles and a ceiling of 22,000 feet. The Aero Commander led to the Jet Commander, which became the IAI 1121 through 1124 Westwind business jets. Aero Commanders can still be seen at some airports in excellent condition, but many are neglected as newer aircraft are in favor.
