Title: AERONCA L-16

The Aeronca series of light aircraft go back to the pre-war Tandem Trainer and Chief models.

A modernised aircraft, the Model 7 Champion was produced post-war to take advantage of the temporary general aviation boom and proved very successful. A militarised model known as the L-16 was used extensively by the USAF including active service in Korea.
