WARBIRD RADIO – Volunteers at the Museum of Aviation in Warner Robins, Georgia have been working to restore a Cessna UC-78 “Bobcat”.Â The restoration has been a combined effort between museum volunteers and students at Middle Georgia College.Â In 1942, the U.S Army Air Force adopted the Bobcat as a light personnel transport.
By the end of World War II, Cessna had produced over 4,600 Bobcats for the U.S. military.Â The Bobcat didn’t last long in post-war military service. Few (if any) Bobcats were in service with the United States Air Force when it was formed in September, 1947.Â Surviving military aircraft were declared obsolete in 1949.Â For more info on the UC-78 visit the Museum of Aviation’s website by clicking on the Quick Link posted below.
