PostSubject: RAF Stinson L-5''s   Fri May 22, 2009 6:58 pm

Does anyone have any photos of Stinson's in RAF service, particularly any still flying? As far as I know there's only one Stinson in the UK at all, an airworthy one in US markings. As far as I know, the RAF only used Stinson L-5's in the far east, so would have the SEAC (South East Asia Command) roundel, which is dark blue on the outside and light blue inside, changed from the usual blue/white/red so the red circle wouldn't be misidentified as a Japanese aircraft.

Taylor,

How would one contact Duncan?

Rob,

Here's a photo of a Commonwealth Sentinel being used for Brodie trials.



There are a whole series of shots of that aircraft.
