Willard Willard-Curtiss
 
 Willard-Curt
 
Charles F Willard, who had been leasing a Curtiss airplane for his exhibition flights, returned it, and reportedly designed a similar machine customized to his requirements, but still leased the motor from Curtiss (the one used on Curtiss' Rheims Racer). This apparently was distinct from the 1910 Banshee Express, which he implied was his design, but was really another Curtiss product.
 
First flying on 12 August 1910, two were built, the second of which, christened simply The Express, had 50hp five-cylinder Gnôme rotary. Willard set a payload record with this craft by carrying two passengers with him on 14 August 1910.
 
Engine: Curtiss V-8, 63hp
Seats: 2
