Curtiss-Beachey Speed Tractor
 
 Curt-Speed
 
The 1912 Curtiss-Beachey Speed Tractor was the first of the "modern" Curtiss biplanes, with fabric-covered fuselage, although it was flown uncovered for a while, three-point landing gear with tailskid, and double-surfaced wings, but still using trailing interplane ailerons. Used by Beachey for exhibition work. Design was used for the prototype Curtiss Military Tractor. Powered by a 90 hp Curtiss OX V-8.
