Photo Comment

The Super Courier was a light utility transport with excellent STOL capability that allowed it to operate from a clearing the size of a football field. This along with its ability to fly slowly at speeds of approximately 30 mph made it an excellent aircraft for visual reconnaissance and as a FAC. This U-10D on display at the National Museum of the USAF is painted and marked as an aircraft assigned to the 5th Air Commando Squadron in SE Asia in 1968.
