Piper Papoose


This little bubbletop trainer was the world's first fiberglass airplane. It bore a deceptive similarity to the Tomahawk, with which it has nothing in common. Heralded as Piper's next-generation trainer when it was previewed by the press in 1962, the airplane was quietly dropped: the potential profits weren't worth the risks of being a plastics pioneer.
