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 building new wood wings for a Stinson L5. A wood wing kit has been prepared for the rebuild.
