CAF Stinson L 5 Operators

Ich habe k├╝rzlich alle CAF Wings angeschrieben, welche ebenfalls eine Stinson L-5 betreiben und gefragt, ob ich ein paar Informationen und ein paar Fotos des Flugzeugs haben kann. Und hier sind die Antworten aus den USA:

Kuno, I hope these can be of use for you. Thanks for the contact.

In WWII Miss Ziggy Hunter was a trainer of the Ladies, “Wasps” who flew airplanes. Before her passing she was with the DFW Wing and was the sponsor of our L-5; it was named after her.

Hello and thank you for loving old war airplanes! Our L-5 has a very dull history and never left the states. It is the ambulance version and is a great flying airplane. Here are two photos. The closest L-5 is ours. The picture is from a fly-in at Eagle Field in Dos Palos California. And in in our vintage hanger at Modesto CA. PT-23 in the background. I hope you find some of this useful. I look forward to your stories and fun!

Kind regards,

Greetings from Reno, Nevada, USA. I am the squadron leader of the High Sierra Squadron based at Reno-Stead Airport, home of the National Championship Air Races. We have a 1945 L-5G that was operated by the US Marine Corp. (Squadron VMO-6). I will see if I can send some photos and a brief history of the plane to you. We are, like you, a mountain Squadron being located in the Sierra Nevada Mountains. We would love to hear of your experiences with flying the L-5 in the Alps.
