Stinson L-1A Vigilant Military Aircraft

The Stinson L-1 Vigilant was a WW2 light observation aircraft designed to try and emulate the superb performance of the German Fieseler Storch, it was introduced in 1941 and operated with the United States Army Air Corps and the Royal Air Force. The Vigilant never managed to equal the performance of the Fieseler Storch, although, like the Fieseler Storch, it could effectively fly backwards in a strong headwind. The introduction of the Piper L4 Grasshopper sounded the death knell for Stinson Vigilant production.
