The UC-78, known affectionately as the "Bamboo Bomber" because of its wooden construction, was well known as a multi-engine trainer of WWII. Many bomber pilots saw training on this aircraft before going off and training to fly B-17s or B-24s. After WWII, many UC-78s became popular civilian aircraft and were used by some commuter airlines in fledgeling stages.

The Collings Foundation's UC-78 was restored in the late 90's as a Navy JRC-1 by Bill Stookey. It won a 1998 Grand Champion Warbird award at Oshkosh for its fine restoration. It was brought to the Collings Foundation in October of 2001. It is available for airshows and events on the East Coast for the 2008 season and beyond.
