BRIEF HISTORY – SUPER KING AIR 250
The Beechcraft Super King Air series of aircraft is part of the company’s series of twin-turboprop aircraft.

On October 27, 1972, the first prototype flew for the first time. Three production aircraft were also manufactured in 1972 and supplied to the United States Army under military identification, RU-21J.
