Photo Comment

The C-60 was the most numerous of the Lodestar variants operated by the USAF. This example was TOC by the USAAF in 1943 but went to the French post-war and served in Algiers as F-BAMA. It returned to the US around the mid-fifties and flew with various private owners (last reg. as XA-SEX) before arriving at the National Museum of the USAF for preservation and display.
