N76BB was "Bonanza of the Month" in February '77 as Robert Florence, president of Radair Corp. and member of the original board of directors of ABS, took a C model and updated everything imaginable in the spirit of the Bicentennial year, even changing the N number to 76 Bicentennial Bonanza. See that article (2-77) for the list of the extensive mods that were done to this airplane. It continues to fool those on the ramp, who easily mistake it for a V35. What an airplane...I finally have a v-tail!!
