Pigeon Hollow Spar Co Thomas-Pigeon


Thomas-Pigeon

 

The Pigeon Hollow Spar Company also produced a flying boat called the Thomas-Pigeon about 1920. This hydroplane was built for Reginald deNoyes Thomas, a WWI naval aviator and director of the Thomas-Pigeon Aeroplane Corporation of Boston, Massachusetts.

The fuselage is spruce and ash ribboned all-wood construction with mahogany planking.  This type of construction was said to insure safety, long life and reliability in all weather conditions.  

The engine is mounted over the fuselage and below the upper wing.  The only control is a joystick, and it may never have been completed.
