See a 1943 Stinson L-5 Sentinel at the Western Antique Aeroplane and Automobile Museum. Year: 1943

Donation: Terry Brandt

Engine: Lycoming O-435 185HP

First flown in June, 1940 with a 100 HP engine the Sentinel was more or less a military adaptation of Stinson’s Voyager design. The L-5 was an especially tough airplane and as it evolved and horsepower increased by steps to 185 the tasks asked of it often bordered on the impossible. Nicknamed “The Flying Jeep” it gave service in nearly every WWII theater of operation and remained active with the USAF and Marine Corps into the 1950’s.
