AT-19 Reliant N69721
Since most military Stinson Model V77 Reliants went to the
Royal Navy in England during the
war (500 of
them), they are somewhat rare in the USA, since most "Lend Lease"
have been returned to the Lessee! The above is one of these
ex RN machines. It is
my image at Brackett Field in Southern California in the mid-1960s. It
is apparently still
airworthy and flying in Pennsylvania.
image below was taken much more recently and shows another V-77 at an
air show in
Lumberton, North Carolina in 2004 now wearing the obligatory "warbird"
machine was, in reality, the former FB605 with the Royal Navy, it is
painted up as FK810
some reason. It had been returned to the US Navy as
BuAer11608 in 1945 and hence was
civilianized in the USA a N60634.
