See a 1941 Taylorcraft BC12-65 at the Western Antique Aeroplane and Automobile Museum. Year: 1941

Donation: Chuck and Marge Babcock

Engine: Continental A-65 65HP

The BC12-65 is an enhanced BC-65. The differences are mostly details, such as its two-tone paint scheme and some earlier options became standard equipment. Its performance was generally unchanged from its older brother's. Production of this model stopped during WWII while the factory attended to war production but resumed afterward with renewed popularity. For those in the know, this was Charlie McAlister’s airplane.
