Stinson Model 10A

Ground view of Stinson model 10A, NC36793. This view photo was taken in 1943 at Bar Harbor airport, Maine. At the time this airplane was flown by the Civil Air Patrol (CAP) on anti submarie missions off the Eastern seaboard of the United States. A CAP mechanic has the right cowling opening inspecting the engine. (http://www.stinsonflyer.com/avphoto/stn10-01.jpg) (From: http://personalpages.tdstelme.net/~westin/ac-1.htm)
