The Curtiss-Wright C-76 Caravan (company designation CW-27) was an American all-wood military transport aircraft.
The C-76 was intended as a substitute standard aircraft in the event of expected wartime shortages of light alloys.
However, both prototype and production aircraft failed several critical flight and static tests, and after U.S. aluminium production proved sufficient for wartime defence requirements, orders for the C-76 were cancelled and production terminated.
Prototypes, 11 built.
Production aircraft built at St Louis, five built.
Production variant, nine built.
Production variant, order for 175 cancelled, none built.
