STINSON RELIANT V-77
The Stinson Reliant is a light, single engine, high-wing monoplane dating back to the Second World War era. The British Royal Air Force operated it as a transport and liaison aircraft, while the U.S. Army also used it as a trainer. Between 1933 and 1941 some 1,327 Reliants were built in various configurations. The models SR-1 through to SR-6 were all straight-wing Reliants, while all models from SR-7 to SR-10 were gull-wing Reliants, which had greater lateral stability in particular while banking.
The UC-81 and AT-19 Reliants were sold as civilian variants under the designation "Vultee V-77" after the end of the war. AIRPOWER16 will feature a V-77 as part of the Static Display.
