Curtiss P-6E Hawk Of the 17th Pursuit Squadron, USAAC
The Curtiss P-6E Hawk was undoubtedly the definitive biplane of the P-series developed by Curtiss during the 1920s and 30s. With a state-of-the-art Conqueror V12 power-plant turning a 3 bladed adjustable prop, its looks and performance were certainly impressive for the time.
Of the 47 delivered to the USAAC in 1932, only one original aircraft survives to this day, on display at the National Museum of the USAF in Ohio, USA, painted in the livery of the aircraft flown by Capt. Ross G. Hoyt, commanding officer of the 17th Pursuit Squadron in 1933.
