Stinson Reliant

Our museum owns this Stinson SR-10C Reliant NC18496. This airplane was used in the air mail pick-up operations of American Airlines' predecessor, All American Airways.

We're currently raising funds to house the airplane and begin purchasing items such as fabric and dope to restore it to All American Colors. The museum also has an accurate 1/6th Scale model of this same stinson which was built by Harry Garman of Pittsburgh, PA. It is displayed in flight at the museum in full colors.
