A True Vintage Aircraft Rarity – Only One of Five Known to Fly in The WorldThe 1938 Ryan SCW-145 is known to be one of the five aircraft models to have ever flown. This particular example flew with the US Army Air Force on Liaison duties during World War II designated an L10.

While based with ATC at Morrison Field and Lantana with the CAP, it became the subject matter of popular cartoonist and CAP pilot, Zack Mosley. Best known for his syndicated aviation cartoon strip ‘The Adventures of Smilin’ Jack’, Mosley’s art described life in the CAP and helped in its recruiting drive.
