HISTORY

  • Manufactured by the Stinson Aircraft Division of the Aviation Manufacturing Corporation of Wayne, MI, the Stinson model Vultee V-77 was a well-liked monoplane with a high-wing. Between the period of 1933-1941, over 1,300 were built in a number of variants. Militarized versions appeared between 1942-43.
  • The Vultee V-77 Reliant was used by the U.S. Army Air Forces in World War 2 under the designation of the UC-81.  Nearly 1,500 were built and used for various military utility purposes.  The military trainer version of the UC-81 was designated the AT-19 and was also used by the Royal Air Force and Navy as transport aircraft. The aircraft returned to the V-77 designation after the war for the civilian market.
