WICHITA, Kan. (AP) -- Aircraft maker Beechcraft is celebrating the delivery of its 4,000th Model 36 Bonanza plane.

Beechcraft employees were scheduled to join CEO Bill Boisture at a ceremony Monday to hand over the keys to the customer. The event was taking place at the company's headquarters in Wichita, Kan.

Beechcraft Corp., formerly Hawker Beechcraft, emerged in February from bankruptcy protection as a slimmed-down company.
