Stinson L-5 Sentinel, Sensenich wooden propellor

Since serving in World War II, this Stinson L-5 'Sentinel' has endured an interesting history of ownership and restoration. She has been with the Epps family, and was brought to Atlanta from Tyler, Texas. For the last decade, N10460 has been owned and operated by Michael Kennedy and Steve Collins out of DeKalb-Peachtree (PDK) airport, and can frequently be seen proudly displayed at the 57th Fighter Group restaurant.

For the Summer of 2011, she made the journey to OshKosh, Wisconsin for the big airshow, and has been on display at several shows in the southeast. We always welcome spectators, so if you would like to see the plane for yourself just let us know! She burns about 12 gallons/hour, and for the price of gas you might be able to find a pilot to take you on a tour of Atlanta.

Although Mike and I frequently disagree, I call her 'Bella' for the exhaust fangs, and for the fact that she'll bite you at night if you're not careful. By day, Mike calls her 'B' Dog, a little more masculine, in memory of a plane named 'Yellow Dog', and for the Marine VMO-6 'WB' inscription on the tail.
