The Curtiss P-6E Hawk was one of the most beautiful biplanes ever created and the very last biplane fighter the Army ever ordered. By the time it was introduced, the era of flamboyant trim schemes and fabric-covered wood biplanes was rapidly giving way to mass production, advanced aerodynamics and all-aluminum skins. The last remaining P-6E is in the Smithsonian Museum in Washington, D.C. However, you can still enjoy its graceful lines and vibrant colors at your local field with this beautiful, one-of-a-kind ARF.
