William M. Charney (Captain Biff Windsok) and his Beechcraft Staggerwing / 2014 09 10, Pociūnai airfield

Bill Charney, Captain Biff Windsock, is a true American aviator who has followed his boyhood dream by living his passion for aviation throughout his life. This deep love of flying has prepared him for his latest adventure—Around the World in a Staggerwing.

In 1940, when Bill first saw and fell in love with the Staggerwing at a US air show. It was the start of his life-long dream to one day own a Staggerwing.

The path to Bill Charney's global adventure, began as a teenager in high school. Bill wanted a pilot license so he began by working at a local airfield washing planes. As hard as he worked, he never managed to get enough money to get his license. Realizing his flying dreams came through his entry in the National Guard. After joining the guard, Bill learned that the Air National Guard was in need of pilots; he was soon on his way to being trained by the US Air Force.

From 1932-'49, Beech built 785 Staggerwings. Today less than 270 exist & fewer than 100 still fly.

History of the Staggerwing Beech N16S

The old girl was born in late 1943 at the Beechcraft factory in Wichita, Kansas. She was delivered to the US Navy on 2 February 1944, as a model GB-2. However, under the Lend Lease Program, she was immediately shipped to the UK, assigned the ID number FT466, and assigned to the Royal Navy as a Traveller Mk.1.

Her stations included Lockheed Renfrew to C & D Squadrons, AAEE Boscombe Down, HMS Sandrling (RNAS Abbotsinch) at Glasgow, Scotland. She was painted in British Camouflage.

After WWII she was returned to the US at Norfolk, VA, in 1946. She has had many owners since and has been restored several times. The latest restoration took place recently at Mandeville, New Zealand by the Croydon Aircraft Company. She was shipped there from Reno, Nevada, USA, by the present owner—Captain Biff Windsock.

She is now on the long journey home back to Reno, Nevada over a 2 or 3 year period. Captain Biff's plan is to visit as many countries as possible along the way. It is to be a flight of navigational challenge, cultural discovery, and environmental appreciation.
