Stinson NC6197M, Bar
Harbor, Maine, August 21, 1949
Above is a vintage photo of the
Stinson I owned for many years. It is a 1948 "Flying Station Wagon", model
108-3, Registration NC6197M, Serial 108-4197. I bought it in 1986 and flew it
for years before beginning a restoration. In 2011 I
found it necessary to sell the project for health reasons. For
more information on NC6197M, click on the photo or follow the links
