L-5 Sentinel "Nuts to You" More "Nuts to You" Info

UNDERGOING REPAIR In 1940, Gen. George S. Patton purchased a small aircraft called a Stinson Voyager. He used the aircraft extensively in Ft. Benning Georgia to keep an eye on training of his armored brigade. Due to the Voyager’s ability to operate where most aircraft couldn’t, Gen. Patton was able to be everywhere at once. Something he never could have accomplished in a command car. Patton’s use of the Voyager paved the way for liaison aircraft also known as "L-Birds" and “Flying Jeeps”. The first liaison airplane specifically built for the army was the Stinson L-5 Sentinel. Beginning in 1942, the L-5 was utilized in every theater of war providing courier service between Army... ...

L-5 Sentinel More Info

The Stinson OY-1 Sentinel is a two-seat World War II-vintage observation aircraft. Nearly 3,500 were built making it the second most widely used Army Air Corps liaison aircraft. The aircraft served in European and Asian theaters and with the Marines in the Pacific. It continued service in the Korean War but was replaced by other aircraft and helicopters in 1955. With short field takeoff and landing capability, the OY-1 performed reconnaissance, artillery spotting and aerial ambulance duties.

PT-13 More Info

Today, the CAF owns and operates the largest collection of vintage military aircraft in the world: 165 fighters, bombers, transports and trainers. The extensive care of the CAF's fleet is done almost entirely by members who volunteer their time and resources to maintain, fly and exhibit these aircraft at events across America. What keeps the organization focused and its members engaged is our mission: "Education, such that generations of Americans value and support the contributions of military aviation in assuring our nation's freedom."

The CAF has always operated with the idea that, to teach history, one must go beyond traditional methods like history books and noiseless museums. One of the reasons the CAF has remained a flying museum is because the sights, sounds and smells of these historic aircraft make for a more impactful personal experience. Therefore, much of our educational effort involves attending airshows around the country. Nearly all CAF aircraft are available for guided tours, and more than 80 aircraft are able to give rides to the public, making hands-on access a large part of the educational experience.
