C-78 Bobcat (multiple)

UC-78 Bobcat (Pima 03-23-17) 9579

I photographed these Cessna UC-78 Bobcat examples on display at Pima and the NMoUSAF. The Bobcat was designed from Cessna’s T-50 civilian plane, and with upgraded engines became the AT-17 multi-engine trainer at the outbreak of WWII. The JRC-1 is the Navy designation for the UC-78.
