Many civilian GA aircraft were impressed into military service during the war. In effect, the government bought your airplane from you and used it for whatever purpose they deemed it fit. All manner of civilian a/c were "drafted" by the military. After the war, most those which had survived were sold back onto the civilian market....occasionally the original owners were able to buy them back.
