Pretty good overall. Some of your information is not well validated. For example, you stated that the V77/AT19 Stinsons were not Reliants. Not so. These aircraft were lendleased to the RAF where they were identified as the Stinson Reliant. They had a Reliant I, Reliant II, and Reliant III. They were all the same aircraft but differed in role and equipment. The airframe of the V77/AT19 series is three feet longer than the earlier civilian models and 8 inches wider. The wings are the same. The engine is a later model of the Lycoming R680 that produces 300HP for takeoff and 285 HP continuously. They hold 30 Imperial gallons of fuel in each wing. They are slightly slower than the civilian models because of their larger fuselage. They were all built as AT19's on contract to the US Army Air Corps in two contracts in 1942 and 1943. They were NOT certified and were not intended to be flown as civilian aircraft. They were approved for certain aerobatic maneuvers according to the AT19 Pilot's Manual. After the war the surviving aircraft were returned to the US. In order to sell them as surplus they required a civilian type certificate. By that time Stinson Aircraft was owned by Consolidated-Vultee ( who later became Convair ) so they ran through a type certification based on the SR10 series certification as the Vultee 77th design. Hence the civilian name of V77. To sell them
they had to "remanufacture" them. The "remanufacture" consisted of painting over the British roundels and installing a back seat if they didn't have one. They assigned new serial numbers in the order they were remanufactured. I currently have three of them in my shop in Pinckneyville, Illinois.

Let me tell you some day how I helped fire BG Chuck Yeager from the USAF. That was when he was a bull Col. The USAF gave him a sympathy star to get rid of him. He was a bad apple as far as I am concerned.
