American Airlines Stinson SR-10E Reliant
This oft published photo shows
one of half a dozen or so Stinson Reliants (of various +marques)
acquired by the airline in 1939 for route survey work.
The image below shows another one.
The Reliants were
also used as executive aircraft and for pilot
training. The above

collection, whilst mine below came from an American A/L house
journal. Both shots were taken at Chicago
Municipal Airport (later to become Midway)..
Oddly, of the 21 SR-10Es built, it would appear that only one of them
was impressed into
the USAAF as a UC-81H. American's were all sold off
