Stinson Reliant

The museum's Stinson SR-10C Reliant NC18496 is a constant for us. 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 acquired an accurate 1/6th Scale model of this same Stinson in the past year which is displayed in flight at the museum.
