Stinson L5

Many a wounded GI was grateful for the little ambulance airplane that got them out of harm's way during WWII and Korea. The Stinson L5 Sentinel came in two versions, the observer and ambulance versions. It was used under fire as a forward observation platform with aerial photo capability, personnel transportation, ambulance and about every other use that an aerial "Jeep" would be useful for. It was "STOL" airplane that utilized fields, roads and other "bush" areas for takeoffs and landings.

Big Sky is restoring the L5 for a retired Army helicopter pilot, now flying Med Evac helicopters. It will be his personal "warbird" for air show gatherings. Army guys can't seem to get the OD Green out of their blood!
