Cessna DC-6 / UC-77 / UC-77A




A scaled-down four-seat version of the CW-6, the Model DC-6 with a 127kW Curtiss Challenger engine, was rolled out in February 1929. This entered production in two versions, the DC-6A and DC-6B powered respectively by the 224kW Wright R-985 Whirlwind and the 168kW Wright J-6, both versions gaining type certificates in September 1929. The depression which followed the Wall Street crash restricted production, of the two models to around 24 of each, some of which were taken on charge by the USAAF in 1942 as the UC-77 and UC-77A respectively.
