Stinson Model O, Museum of Flight, Seattle, WA
USA
A recent museum addition is this full-scale reproduction of a 1933 Stinson Model O, or Senior Trainer. The Model O was originally designed by Robert Hall (of Gee Bee fame) as a military trainer and was configured for aerial machine gunning and bombing. A total of 10 were made in 1933 and 1934, five of which were sold to Honduras, three to China, and one to Brazil. The prototype stayed in the U.S. and ended up as an instrument trainer in Long Beach, California. It then was moved to Love Field in Texas at the start of WWII, and fell off the CAA registry in 1945. Like the original, this re-creation is also powered by a Lycoming R680 engine turning a Hamilton Standard constant-speed propeller. As was done for the original airplane, all fairings were hand-formed from aluminum. No fiberglass was used in the construction. A Lockheed Electra 10-E sits next to the Stinson.

More About USA

The United States is one of the most diverse countries on earth, jam packed full of amazing sights from St. Patrick's cathedral in New York to Mount Hollywood California.The Northeast region is where it all started. Thirteen British colonies fought the American Revolution from here and won their independence in the first successful colonial rebellion in history. Take a look at these rolling hills carpeted with foliage along the Hudson river here, north of New York City.The American south is known for its polite people and slow pace of life. Probably they move slowly because it's so hot. Southerners tend not to trust people from "up north" because they talk too fast. Here's a cemetery in Georgia where you can find graves of soldiers from the Civil War.The West Coast is sort of like another country that exists to make the east coast jealous. California is full of nothing but grizzly old miners digging for gold, a few gangster rappers, and then actors. That is to say, the West Coast functions as the imagination of the US, like a weird little brother who teases everybody then gets famous for making freaky art.The central part of the country is flat farmland all the way over to the Rocky Mountains. Up in the northwest corner you can find creative people in places like Portland and Seattle, along with awesome snowboarding and good beer. Text by Steve Smith.
