Stinson L5-E “Sentinel”

stinson 140x93The Stinson L-5 Sentinel was developed for the Army from the civilian Stinson Voyager.  The L-5 served in observation and support roles as a light and nimble aircraft that would operate out of almost any small field available.
L-5’s were capable of taking off in as little as 50 feet with full flaps, earning the name of the “Flying Jeep”.   The plane could deliver messages and supplies to front line areas, and evacuate casualties in a “litter” behind the pilot when the observers seat was not needed. 
During the Korean war, Marine L-5’s (USMC designation OY) even operated from a carrier.
