Is there a way to tell the year, type, etc?

thanks,
Serge

BTW.. Nope, sadly I do not have the registration..  Sad

B36TC

Mainly because of the cowling latch.

I gotta contest -- I agree it's a TC but I think it's an A36TC; looking at the left wingtip it doesn't look like it has the tip extensions that a B36TC would have.

Here's Raytheons page on the two. You can look around at it for the details. As far as your picture, it's hard to tell, A36's aren't TC's though.

Hope this helps. Peter

Peter--

The first model 36 to be turbocharged was the A36TC. Later, an improved model, the B36TC came out and is still available. Differences were (straining memory) a slightly different engine, but more importantly, the wingtip extensions and the fact that is has a single fuel boost setting -- whereas in the A36TC it was possible to actually flood the motor if you didn't modulate the high boost setting.

The type certificate says the A36TC uses either a TSIO-520U or UB. The B36TC uses the TSIO-520UB only.

The 2 models are close with respect to performance and such. The B36 max weight is 200 pounds more. Vne is 3 knots higher etc....

Anyone that is interested can check out the Type Certificate at this very long link:

I wasn't claiming to be an expert on the various and numerous versions of the Bonanza. It would take an aviation "archaeologist's" fine toothed comb to differentiate between one years version versus the next. I just wanted to get the ball rolling, which I think that I was successful doing. When I was about 7 yrs. old, my Dad was doing some business with Olive Ann Beech, who ran the company at the time, and she sent him a cool roll of posters of the Beech lineup at the time (including the B-18, A-65 Queen Air, the first year of the B-90 King Air, and two versions of a new model of the Bonanza F-33, one normally aspirated, one turbo). In looking at the pictures of the Bonanzas, with the same paint scheme, I couldn't tell which was which. Anyway, thanks for your input, and obvious expertise.
Peter
