What make and model aircraft is this?

Tougher question: what is the registration of it?



Thanks for any help.

No, it´s a Beech Baron E55 - and not a B55 as some might have guessed initially ...
The E 55 (285 HP) has air inlets on top of the cowling - the B 55 (260 HP) doesn´t have this.

Only the B 58 (or the actual G 58) has also these air inlets on the upper side of the cowling but has a longer fuselage (+ more windows, of course ...)



I miss the sound of rolls royce darts and speys

You may have nailed it! Thanks!

I think this is the one. A close family member is taking it to Canada next week. All I had was the one pic to go by. Appreciate the help.

Is this a 2 bladed version? Kind of looks like it.

At the FBO I used to work at any twin got them. I'll never forget chasing those rugs around the ramp when you were too busy to pick them up when the planes left.
