Earlier this year, we found out that our L-5 had some major engine trouble. Once we dug into it further, we realized that it wasn't something small, but it was a rather large fix, requiring a new cam and accessory gears.
If you are looking for a project to donate to this holiday season, please consider donating to our L-5 to help get her back in the air in 2020.
The L-5 Sentinel was a versatile aircraft of World War II. This unarmed aircraft was often used for observation, spotting, search and rescue, and transporting personnel. They were also used as air ambulances depending on the model. It's slow landing speed made it capable of literally landing and taking off from almost anywhere. For that reason, it was a very popular aircraft and saw use in all theaters of the war.
