classy pic - thanks
Any background on this type of bird please. Looks like one of those slow slow planes that circle above golf tournaments providing TV pictures.
Looks quite like one (model) my friend has hanging in his office. He was an AO for Arty spotting in the late 50's/early 60's. I believe he called it an "L-19". I was redleg at that time and perhaps had him call my corrections! Nice Post, thanks.

This bird appears to me to be a Cessna L-19 (O-1) Bird Dog.
Long-lived liaison/observation/spotter aircraft - WW2, Korea, Vietnam

A teste fly on my Mac

That's not the usual rounded Cessna tail on a L-19. Looks more like a Stinson tail to me.

Stinson L-5 Sentinel

L-5 Spent many hours in the back seat as a CAP Observer.
Thanks for the rich detail back boys. Last Q’s Big cabin . How many seats? Any armaments? Looks a bit vulnerable.

Definitely the L-5 Sentinel made by Stinson. Had an uncle that flew "The Wild Turk" in Pacific Islands WW-II
Even at it's top speed of 130 the tail is clearly not Cessna. Thanks all you Stinson spotters.
Tandem seating, front and back (for John McGeoghan).

It's really a shame when people post pictures without the info.

For me, no story, no stars and I really liked the photo.

The . tail is the "giveaway". Looks like an L-5 to me. That tail has Stinson written all over it. I agree, if you casn't identify the photo, Don't post the picture.

It is a Stinson L-5 Sentinel liaison (observation) aircraft from WW II era. It was developed from the Stinson Voyager civilian 4-place model, I believe. It was a contemporary of the Piper Cub, Cessna 120 and 140 light aircraft.

Looks a bit vulnerable!?? Dude, there is only a square foot or so of the aircraft plus another one that is the pilot, that is vulnerable to projectiles. It is chrome-moly tubing, wood and fabric! It has a radar profile smaller than most motorcycles. It has a heat signature also about like a motorcycle, well below any heat-seeking weapon I know about. I'll fly this sweetheart into any hostile airspace you got. (On a mission appropriate for it of course...)

Oh! Armaments? No, not officially, unless you count the pilot's sidearm. One might drop hand grenades out the window, but neither these have credible accuracy. The "L" is for liaison (def: communication or cooperation that facilitates a close working relationship between people or organizations), which for this bird means light cargo truck, and-or carrying some officer a lot faster than he can go in a jeep. Not intended for deliberate hostile engagement. It also was used in the "O" Observation role. Eye in the sky to see what the other guys are doing...

Athosbkn attn:John mcGeoghan : subject Stinton 299.186.

Hit by Swiss AA on 0ct 12th, 1944 near Vacherie/Jura and added to Swiss Airforce. Very detailed report (in English) by CAF Col Werner Meier, includes crashpictures and history of this plane, up to (it's?) Memorial Flight in 2004. There is more on 299.186 on Swiss internet, even from after 2004!
