Ireland Aircraft Comet


G. S. Ireland founded his company to manufacture an aircraft known as the Ireland Comet, which combined surplus Curtiss Oriole fuselages with new wings and tail unit.
With the closure of the Curtiss Oriole production line, a number of completed fuselages became available and Ireland was able to obtain them. With help from friends in the Curtiss design office new wings were created.  These had a deeper rib section, and single bay bracing. Following initial flights in 1925, some 40 of these Comets are thought to have been produced before the fuselages ran out.
