Stinson 108 Voyager

stinson-108


Introduced in August 1945, the model 108 Voyager accounted for almost half of all four-place aircraft sold. By the end of 1947, Stinson Aircraft had built over 5200 Voyagers, including a Station agon version, but by then the boom had ended and 200 unsold Voyagers were parked at Willow Run Airport.
