The Stinson SM-6000 Airliner was a 1930s three-engined (trimotor) 10-passenger airliner designed and built by the Stinson Aircraft Corporation. The SM-6000 was a high-wing braced monoplane with room for a pilot and a cabin for ten passengers. It was powered by three 215hp (160kW) Lycoming R-680 engines strut-mounted one each side above the main landing gear units and one in the nose. A number of variants were built mainly with improved interiors. In 1932 the Model U Airliner was produced which had low-set stub wings with an engine mounted at each wingtip.
Only two of the high-wing models are known to exist. One by Greg Herrick in Minneapolis, Minnesota, the other is owned by Kermit Weeks and is maintained in airworthy condition at Fantasy of Flight in Polk City, Florida.
