| The late Gary Archer, M.D, of Anchorage AK used to fly a Stinson L-1 just for fun in the 1960's - 1970's. |

I got to fly one of these and can tell you that there is no active boundary layer control. It just has large wings with full span self-actuating (retractable) leading edge slats.

| Just thought you might like to know that there are three
L-1 airframes at Fantasy of Flight (Kermit Weeks) in Polk City Florida.
One is a restoration of a machine they were flying before Hurricane Andrew clobbered them in Miami the other two they think they can rebuild into second flying example.

| I found that picture in Interavia 1955. It must be a BLC (Boundry Layer Control) aircraft under supervision of the Dow Chemical Company.
Does anybody knows more about it?
