Navy TS-1

The Navy TS-1 was a small scout aircraft that was the first US Navy fighter specifically designed to operate from an aircraft carrier. The TS-1 was designed by the Bureau of Aeronautics, but most were produced by Curtiss. It was an unusual looking biplane, with gaps between the fuselage and both the upper and lower wings.

The wings were un-staggered and of equal chord. The upper wing was level, the lower wing had a slight dihedral. The fuel tank was carried in a bulge in the centre section of the lower wing. The wings were connected by diagonal struts, which removed the need for bracing wires. It was powered by the 200hp Lawrence J-1 air-cooled radial engine, which later became the Wright Whirlwind.

The TS-1 could operate as a land plane, with a standard fixed undercarriage, or as a float plane. The TS designation stood for Turret Scout, suggesting that it was designed to operate from platforms mounted above gun turrets, but it was actually built for use on the new carrier USS Langley, which was commissioned early in 1922. Curtiss was awarded a contract to produce 34 TS-1s, and the first arrived in May 1922, two months after the Langley. The Naval Aircraft Factory produced another five standard TS-1s to make sure that Curtiss weren't overcharging the Navy.

The TS-1 served with Squadron VF-1, which operated it as a land plane from the USS Langley, and with floats from battleships (during 1925-26). The TS-1 was also used as a float plane by Squadron VO-1, which operated it from battleships, cruisers and destroyers from 1922 (starting with tests on the USS Charles Ausburn (DD-294)). None of these ships carried catapults, so the TS-1s were lowered into the water using cranes before taking off from the sea.

The Naval Aircraft Factory produced four examples of two experimental versions of the TS alongside the five standard TS-1s. The TS-2 used a 240 Aeromarine engine and the TS-3 used a 180hp Wright-Hispano E. Two examples were produced of each type.

The second TS-3 was converted into the TR-2 race. It was given a different aerofoil and entered unsuccessfully into the 1922 Curtiss Marine Trophy Race. It was then modified again and used as a racing trainer during the 1923 Schneider Cup.

The final version of the TS was an all-metal aircraft produced by Curtiss as the F4C-1.

Navy TS-1 - History

T he history of Fighter Squadron FOURTEEN dates back to the origins of Naval Aviation. Its record of continuous active service began in September of 1919, which makes it the Navy’s oldest active squadron. Since its inception the squadron has flown twenty-two different type aircraft, had its designation changed fourteen times, operated from twenty different aircraft carriers, as well as several battleships, and has had seventy-two Commanding Officers (the seventy-third is now in command).

Over the years the squadron has been assigned many different missions, including patrol and observation in its early years, and scouting, attack, and fighter missions when it became associated with carrier-based operations.

The TOPHATTERs began carrier operations onboard the Navy’s first aircraft carrier USS LANGLEY (CV-1) in 1926. The squadron, then designated Fighter Plane Squadron ONE, established a record for carrier landings in a single day. Flying the TS-1, they logged one hundred twenty-seven traps by the end of flight operations.

In 1929 the squadron was assigned to USS SARATOGA (CV-3), where it began as a fighter squadron and transitioned to a bomber squadron. Throughout the 1930’s, the TOPHATTERs flew the FB-5, F2B, F8C-4 Helldiver, F-4B, F11C Goshawk, BFC-s and the SB2U-1 Vindicator aircraft. In 1939, while flying the Vindicator, the TOPHATTERs were transferred to the Atlantic Fleet and the USS RANGER (CV-4).

The TOPHATTERs proved to be formidable foes during World War II. While embarked on USS RANGER (CV-4) the squadron provided air support for the invasion of North Africa in November of 1942. During the four days of November 8-11, the pilots destroyed sixteen enemy aircraft. Flying the SBD Dauntless dive bomber, the squadron participated in the first American naval air strike against German forces in Norway’s inner channel.

In November 1944, the squadron transferred to the Pacific Fleet and participated in the Leyte Campaign while embarked on the USS BUNKER HILL (CV-17). After transferring to USS ESSEX (CV-9), the squadron bombed fortifications on Formosa in January 1945, supported the assault on Iwo Jima in February, participated in the first naval carrier strike on Tokyo, and completed Pacific combat operations with strikes on Okinawa in early march 1945.

In 1949, while flying the F-4U Corsair, the TOPHATTERs accepted their current designations as VF-14, as well as the role of all-weather interceptor. In 1954 they transitioned to the F3-D Skynight and in 1956 the F-3H Demon. In May of 1963, the TOPHATTERs transitioned to the F-4B Phantom II and on 23 January 1964, they became the first Phantom squadron to operate onboard the USS FRANKLIN D. ROOSEVELT (CVA-42).

In June 1966, after moving to their present home base at NAS Oceana, the TOPHATTERs deployed to the China Sea to conduct air strikes and support missions against military targets in North Vietnam. During this combat deployment, the squadron flew 1,688 hours on 967 combat sorties and delivered 651,624 pounds of ordnance, in addition to flying its traditional combat air patrol and fighter escort missions.

In January 1974,, after four highly successful Mediterranean deployments, the squadron transitioned to the Navy’s newest fighter, the Grumman F-14A Tomcat.

In June 1975 the TOPHATTERs became the first Atlantic squadron to deploy with the F-14A. In October1978, the TOPHATTER aircrew set an all-time F-14 flight hour record when they flew 977 hours in one month while deployed in the Mediterranean.

In August 1980, the TOPHATTERs deployed to the Mediterranean Sea with Carrier Air Wing ONE onboard the USS JOHN F. KENNEDY (CV-67). During this deployment, VF-14 won the Silver Anchor Award and in 1980 COMNAVAIRLANT Battle "E" Award for their combat readiness, the second year in a row.

In July 1981, the TOPHATTERs joined Carrier Air Wing SIX. The squadron deployed again in June 1982 onboard USS INDEPENDENCE (CV-62), and in July was named the "Best Fighter Squadron" by Commander, Fighter Wing ONE (COMFITWINGONE) for their superb performance in the Fleet Fighter Air Combat Readiness Program (FFARP) against the VF-43 Adversary squadron.

October and early November 1983 found the TOPHATTERs logging more combat time in support of Operation "Urgent Fury" in Grenada. After playing an integral part in the liberation of Grenada from Cuban insurgents, VF-14 proceeded east to the Mediterranean to participate in contingency operations off the coast of Lebanon. In early December of 1983, the TOPHATTERs were again called upon to provide combat air support for the elements of the multi-national forces in Beirut.

On 1 April 1985, the TOPHATTERs returned to the USS JOHN F. KENNEDY (CV-67) and Carrier Air Wing THREE, where they spent the rest of the year on a turnaround training schedule which included eleven detachments to various parts of the United States and Canada.

On 18 April 1986, the TOPHATTERs and the USS JOHN F. KENNEDY (CV-67) departed for the Mediterranean once again and were extended on deployment due to the Lebanon Hostage Crisis. Upon their return to the United States, the TOPHATTERs were again proclaimed the "Best Fighter Squadron" by winning the 1987 FFARP award.

In 1989, VF-14 was presented with the COMNAVAIRLANT "Grand Slam" award in recognition of their perfect missile firing record. The Competition for this annual award included all East coast F-14 and F/A-18 squadrons.

On 10 August 1990, eight days after the Iraqi invasion of Kuwait, USS JOHN F. KENNEDY (CV-67) was ordered to emergency deploy to the Red Sea in support of Operation "Desert Shield". During the months leading up to the war, the TOPHATTERs played an integral role in enforcing the Iraqi embargo. On the morning of 17 January 1991, the TOPHATTERs once again flew into combat when they joined U. N. forces in the air assault on Iraq.

In December of 1991, VF-14 became one of the first squadrons to begin training for the Tomcat’s new air-to-ground mission. After low altitude flight training and several strike related schools, the TOPHATTERs tackled the Tomcat Advanced Strike Syllabus (now designated AARP) and put their new skills to the test during Air Wing work-ups in Fallon, Nevada.

In October 1992, the TOPHATTERs again headed east for their 92-93 Mediterranean deployment. Once past the Rock of Gibraltar, VF-14 immediately began flying air superiority and reconnaissance missions in the Adriatic Sea in support of U. N. policies in the former Yugoslavian Republics. During this deployment, the TOPHATTERs also participated in several highly successful exercises with Egypt, Morocco, and Turkey, while continuing to support operations off the coast of the former Yugoslavia and Operation "Provide Comfort" in Iraq.

On 1 April 1994, the TOPHATTERs detached from Carrier Air Wing THREE and joined Commander, Fighter Wing Atlantic, while awaiting reassignment to a Carrier Air Wing. They continued their turnaround training through several air-to-air, air-to-ground and carrier qualification detachments.

Recently, VF-14 detached to Twenty Nine Palms for a Combined Arms Exercise (CAX) where the air-to-ground mission was pushed to the limit. In 1995, the TOPHATTERs also were the testbed for the Tomcat air-to-ground rockets program. Fighting FOURTEEN, the Navy’s "Oldest and the Boldest", completed 76 years of distinguished service in September 1995. At the end of 1995 the TOPHATTERs were awarded the Fighter Fling Banner Blaster award for their superior performance in the air-to-air gunnery arena.

1996 has been a busy year for VF-14. In January 1996, the TOPHATTERs became part of Carrier Air Wing EIGHT and once again rejoined with the USS JOHN F. KENNEDY (CV-67). In March, the squadron deployed on the USS STENNIS (CVN-74) for its shakedown cruise. In May, the squadron was recognized as the Fighter Wing Bomb Derby champions. June took the TOPHATTERs on a forty day cruise aboard the USS JOHN F. KENNEDY (CV-67) to Ireland and England. Next, VF-14 has been deployed onboard USS JOHN F. KENNEDY for a six months visit to the MED and other operating areas, including the Gulf. They succesfully returned from the cruise at the begining of October 1997, adding a new Golden Wrench to the tail of their F-14s and earning another COMNAVAIRLANT Battle "E" Efficiency Award!.

During March 1998 Carrier Air Wing Eight and VF-14 changed their home to the nuclear powered aircraft carrier U.S.S. Theodore Roosevelt (CVN-71). The new assignement brings new challenges to the Oldest and Boldest Fighter Squadron in the Navy! Durig the summer of 1998 the squadron succesfully completed the air-to-ground portion of the SFARP during a ten day detachment to NAS El Centro and took part in the TSTA I and II exercises aboard U.S.S. Theodore Roosevelt (CVN-71). The end of 1998 saw the Tophatters take over the new F-14A DFCS, then go to Fallon, NV for airwing training. They finished a busy year by taking part in the 6 week COMPTUEX.

1999 started with work-ups in preparation for the coming deployment. Then, the 26th of March, VF-14 deployed with CVW-8 aboard the nuclear powered aircraft carrier U.S.S. Theodore Roosevelt (CVN-71) for a scheduled six month deployment to the Med and the Gulf. During this deployment, the squadron, together with the Theodore Roosevelt Carrier Battle Group, was successfully involved in NATO's Operation Allied Force AND in Operation Southern Watch, marking the first time ever that a Carrier Battle Group has been succesful in TWO operation theaters within the same cruise.

The squadron returned home to NAS Oceana to proudly celebrate 80 years of continuous active duty, now more than ever the "oldest and boldest" Fighter Squadron in the Navy.

Among the many awards held by the TOPHATTERs are two Presidential Unit Citations, the Navy Unit Commendation, two Meritorious Unit Commendations, five Battle stars, four CNO Aviation Safety awards, and seven COMNAVAIRLANT Battle Efficiency "E" awards - the last one for 1997!. They were also presented the most coveted trophy of excellence in the fighter community - the Admiral Joseph C. Clifton award - at the Association of Naval Aviation (ANA) convention in May 1998. This award was soon followed by an equally prestigious and exceptional honor - the Arleigh Burke Fleet Trophy, awarded annually to the most improved combat unit (ship, submarine, or squadron) in Commander in Chief, U. S. Atlantic Fleet (CINCLANTFLT). This award has never before been won by an F-14 squadron, and it is perhaps this last award which says the most about where Fighting Fourteen has been and where it is going as the squadron sails into the next millennium.

Operational history

In addition to operating from the carrier deck, the TS-1s served for several years in floatplane configuration aboard destroyers, cruisers, and battleships. The aircraft were slung over the side by crane. Squadron VO-1 operated this way from 1922, and VF-1 flew its float-equipped TS-1s from battleships in 1925 and 1926. [3]

The TS-1 was not universally liked by its crews. Positioning of the lower wing below the fuselage resulted in short wheel struts. This, and the wheel's placement close to each other caused considerable problems with ground looping. [4]

Navy TS-1 - History

USS Charles Ausburn , a 1190-ton Clemson class destroyer built at Squantum, Massachusetts, was commissioned in March 1920. Originally intended to be named Ausburn , and launched as such in mid-December 1919, she received her definitive name a month before completion. When the Navy formally adopted its hull number system in July 1920, she was designated DD-294. Throughout her career Charles Ausburn was primarily employed in the Atlantic and Caribbean, though participation in large U.S. Fleet exercises took her to the Pacific at least once. The destroyer also deployed to Europe and the Mediterranean Sea in 1925-1926. A year earlier, in mid-1924, she operated in the North Atlantic in support of a flight around the World by U.S. Army aircraft. Another aviation-related assignment took place in the fall of 1923, when she was temporarily fitted to operate a seaplane, an early attempt to use smaller warships to take aircraft to sea. Following a decade of service, USS Charles Ausburn was decommissioned at the Philadelphia Navy Yard in May 1930. She was sold for scrapping in January 1931.

Military

VFA-14, Tophatters, is based at NAS Lemoore in California. They were redesignated VFA-14, from VF-14, in 2001. This was to reflect VFA-14's transition training to the F-18E/F Super Hornet. The Tophatters had previously been flying the F-14 Tomcat.

At the beginning of 1999, the Tophatters of VF-14 celebrated their 80th year of continuous active service. Being the US Navy's oldest continuous active duty squadron, Tophatter history is very much a history of naval aviation. The squadron was established in September of 1919 at NAS San Diego, and since its inception has had fourteen different squadron designations and flown over twenty-two different types of aircraft. Fighter Squadron Fourteen has operated from no less than twenty two kinds of cruisers, battleships, and aircraft carriers, carrying the United States flag to all corners of the seven seas.

The squadron's career began on the US Navy's first carrier, USS Langley, (CV 1). The squadron, then Fighter Plane Squadron 1, established a record for carrier landings in a single day. Flying the TS-1 aircraft, one hundred twenty seven landings were completed by the end of flight operations.

As for the top hat, it was originally adopted in 1927. Devised by then commanding officer, LCDR Gerry Bogan, the unit emblem was meant to symbolize the very best, and to boost the morale of the aviators who were flying the notoriously difficult Boeing FB-5. Originally called the High-Hatters, the title changed in 1942 to the more modern

Over the years, the squadron has been assigned many different missions, including patrol and observation in its early years, and scouting, attack, and fighter when it became associated with carrier based operations. In 1929, the squadron was assigned to USS Saratoga (CV 3), where it began as a fighter squadron and transitioned to a bomber squadron. Throughout the 1930's the Tophatters flew various aircraft before being transferred to the Atlantic fleet and USS Ranger (CV 4).

The Tophatters proved formidable foes during World War II. The squadron saw action in North Africa and against German forces in Norway. In November of 1944, the squadron transferred to the Pacific Fleet and participated in various campaigns. In 1949, while flying the F-4U Corsair, the Tophatters accepted their current designation as VF-14 as well as the role of all weather interceptor.

In 1954, they transitioned to the jet age with the F3-D Skynight and shortly thereafter, in 1956, to the F-3H Demon. In May 1963, the Tophatters transitioned to the F-4B Phantom II and on 23 January 1963 they became the first Phantom squadron to operate onboard the USS Franklin D. Roosevelt (CVA 42). In January 1974 the squadron transitioned to the F-14A Tomcat and in June 1975, the Tophatters became the first squadron to deploy to the Mediterranean with the F-14A Tomcat. What followed was a very successful period for Fighter Squadron Fourteen, employing the Tomcat in various conflicts throughout the world including over 80 combat missions while engaged in operation "Urgent Fury" over Grenada. Shortly after that they were participating in operations off the coast of Lebanon in support of elements of the multinational forces in Beirut. They were on extended deployment during the Lebanon Hostage crisis of 1986 and were on station with the USS John F. Kennedy (CV 67) shortly after the 1990 invasion of Kuwait by Iraqi ground forces. In January 1991, the Tophatters again saw combat during operation Desert Shield and Desert Storm.

Dark times fell on the squadron when in April 1994 they were transferred to Commander, Fighter Wing Atlantic in anticipation of decommissioning. Two aviators were recovered following their ejection from an F-14 Tomcat that crashed into the Atlantic Ocean, approximately 75 miles off the coast of Virginia at 11:50 a.m. 23 March 1995. The aviators of Fighter Squadron (VF) 14, based at Naval Air Station Oceana, were on a routine training flight.

The squadron was given a reprieve and began building up again in 1996 in anticipation for a 1997 summer Mediterranean cruise onboard the USS John F. Kennedy (CV 67).

Following a very successful deployment, the squadron spent most of 1998 at home in Virginia Beach while looking forward to their 80th anniversary deployment onboard the USS Theodore Roosevelt (CVN-71). The Tophatters spent fifteen months preparing for this deployment period. They practiced their gunnery and Air Combat Maneuvering skills in Key West in February 1998 fought against F-15s and F-16s while working with the Air Force in Panama City, Florida in March 1998 then they started the initial phases of the work-up cycle beginning with Air-to-Air Strike-Fighter Advanced Readiness Program (SFARP) in Oceana in June 1998. That was followed shortly by Air-to-Ground SFARP in El Centro, California. Finally, their first embarkation on the Roosevelt came in early September 1998 for the initial phases of the carrier work-up cycle. Then it was off to Fallon, Nevada in October 1998 for several weeks of Airwing training followed by a six week embarked period on the ROOSEVELT to practice what was learned in Fallon. One final embarked training period came in February 1999 before Airwing Eight and the Roosevelt team was considered "ready for deployment."

The Tophatters brought the latest technology with them on this deployment, as the F-14A Tomcat had seen numerous modifications in the previous year. The latest change was new software for the Tomcat's AWG-9 radar control system. Designed in the 1960's and one of the oldest air-to-air radar systems, the AWG-9 is still the most powerful and the new software will increase its capabilities for the 21st century. One of the improvements was the incorporation of a new Digital Flight Control System (DFCS) that replaced the analog system in use since the aircraft's inception. All pilots agree that the Tomcat is now more maneuverable and has crisp response to pilot control inputs. Along with the DFCS modification came a new, more advanced Radar Warning Receiver that gives the Tophatter aircrew earlier and more accurate indications of enemy radar trying to detect and lock onto their aircraft. Another significant improvement was an upgraded software package for the LANTIRN pod, the infrared targeting and tracking pod which allows the Tomcat to employ numerous types of laser guided munitions. The enhanced software allows the F-14 to more accurately employ weapons as well as record more accurate target coordinates. Using the newly installed Fast Tactical Imagery (FTI) system, the F-14A Aircrew can transmit digital images captured from the LANTIRN pod video to another Tomcat or to the Battle Group Commander. These images could be used for immediate attack by another aircraft, for damage assessment, for locating targets of opportunity, or simply for determining precise coordinates for targeting by other weapons.

When ROOSEVELT and VF-14 departed Norfolk, Va. For a routine six-month deployment on March 26, 1999, they were slated to relieve USS Enterprise Battle Group in the Arabian gulf. However, after a high-speed Atlantic transit, the T.R. was diverted to the Ionian Sea on April 6 to support Operation Allied Force, the NATO-lead air campaign in Kosovo. It would be the first time in NATO's history that the organization collectively authorized military action. On 14 July 1999, T.R. and VF-14 arrived in the Arabian Gulf. They relieved USS Kitty Hawk of Operation Southern Watch duties of enforcing the No-Fly Zone in Southern Iraq. Four days later, on July 18, CVW-8 F/A-18's and F-14's conducted their first strike in theater with precision guided munitions against an Iraqi surface-to-air missile site approximately 200 miles south of Baghdad, and an Iraqi military communications site 150 miles southeast of Baghdad.

The squadron returned home to NAS Oceana to proudly celebrate 80 years of continuous active duty, now more than ever the "oldest and boldest" Fighter Squadron in the Navy. Recently, Carrier Air Wing Eight and VF-14 changed their home to the nuclear powered aircraft carrier USS Enterprise (CVN-65).

In Spring 2001, VF-14 deployed with CVW-8 on board the CVN-65 Enterprise. Following the terrorist attacks of Sept. 11, 2001 VF-14 participated in the air strikes against Afghanistan. After returning to Norfolk in mid-November 2001 VF-14 began to transition to NAS Lemoore where its designation changed to VFA-14 and it received Super Hornets.

Among the many awards held by the TOPHATTERs are two Presidential Unit Citations, the Navy Unit Commendation, two Meritorious Unit Commendations, five Battle stars, four CNO Aviation Safety awards, and eight COMNAVAIRLANT Battle Efficiency "E" awards - the last one for 1999!. They were also presented the most coveted trophy of excellence in the fighter community - the Admiral Joseph C. Clifton award - at the Association of Naval Aviation (ANA) convention in May 1998. This award was soon followed by an equally prestigious and exceptional honor - the Arleigh Burke Fleet Trophy, awarded annually to the most improved combat unit (ship, submarine, or squadron) in Commander in Chief, U. S. Atlantic Fleet (CINCLANTFLT). This award has never before been won by an F-14 squadron, and it is perhaps this last award which says the most about where Fighting Fourteen has been and where it is going as the squadron sails into the third millennium.

With the squadron successfully transitioned the pace picks up considerably as VFA-14 prepare for work-ups and a deployment on the USS Nimitz (CVN-68). Their adventure started near the middle of 2002 with an air-to-air training detachment in Portland, OR. Followed by the Strike Fighter Air Combat Readiness Program (SFARP) in Fallon, NV. The end of 2002 had the mighty TOPHATTERSs returning to Fallon to complete their Air Wing Training during the month of December. Finally during the months of February and March of 2003, VFA-14 concludes work-ups with JTFX combined with COMPTUEX off the coast of San Diego aboard the Nimitz.

After a very short period of leave VFA-14 quickly return to the USS Nimitz (CVN-68) and steam West bound to the Persian Gulf. Today you can find the TOPHATTERs comfortable aboard the Nimitz conducting various flight ops. As the war with Iraq comes to an end VFA-14 have and continue flying many combat sorties to show US presence in Iraq and support for Coalition ground forces.

Hall’s Aluminum Wonders

During the Golden Age of flight, many new aviation firms sprang up. By far the greater percentage failed within their first few years. The reasons vary. In some instances, the whole company was actually a scam from the start, an attempt during the stock-boom days of the 1920s to raise money from a gullible public without regard to a viable design. In other cases the competition was simply too strong.

Even some relatively established companies, such as Berliner-Joyce and Great Lakes, survived only briefly. Thus it is even more amazing that the small Hall Aluminum Aircraft Company could endure for 15 years before being folded in a friendly fashion into Consolidated Aircraft. During that 15-year period, the company produced only 29 planes in a wide range of types that included an innovative personal plane, Navy fighters, a superb-looking torpedo bomber and the largest American biplane flying boat since the Curtiss NC-4: the four-engine Hall Aluminum XP2H-1, an elegant anachronism that combined advanced structural ideas in an antiquated configuration.

Long before weight-reduction programs were commonplace, Charles Ward Hall was determined to reduce plane weight by every means possible. He came by his interest in aluminum naturally: His father, Charles Martin Hall, had invented the process for mass manufacture of aluminum (he founded the firm that became Alcoa).

The younger Hall founded his own company in 1927 after completing two projects that apparently whetted his interest in flying: a small sailboat, on which he rigged a wing from a surplus Thomas-Morse to a novel pivoting mast and the Hall Air Yacht, a grandly named two-seat flying boat powered by a 3-cylinder 60-hp Wright Gale engine. The hull, lower wing, tail booms and tail unit were made of aluminum, but the plane’s 25-foot span upper wing was conventional wood and fabric. The Air Yacht’s empty weight of 520 pounds took it out of the ultralight class, but it performed sufficiently well to convince Hall that aircraft manufacturers in the future would use aluminum as the preferred structural material.

Charles Ward Hall Incorporated began its long association with the U.S. Navy with a contract to build an aluminum version of the wooden wing used on the Curtiss HS-3 flying boat. The wooden version of the wing weighed 1,314 pounds, while Hall’s aluminum version weighed only 851 pounds but was just as strong. That success inspired the Navy to give him a contract for an aluminum version of the Navy’s diminutive TS-1 fighter, designed by the Naval Aircraft Factory specifically for use on board the Navy’s first carrier, Langley. Curtiss won a contract to build 34 TS-1s, all using the new Lawrence J-1 radial engine.

Hall redesigned the TS-1 as an all-aluminum aircraft. Two were built by Curtiss as the Curtiss Hall F4C-1. Slightly altered in the wing layout, the aluminum version weighed 300 pounds less than its wooden siblings.

The Navy awarded Hall two new contracts. One was for the XPH-1, an all-aluminum version of the standard Navy patrol boat. The configuration was both antiquated and ubiquitous the Naval Aircraft Factory PN-7 design had led to a long series of basically identical aircraft built by the NAF, Douglas, Hall, Keystone and Martin. There were two big differences in the Hall aircraft from all the others. The first was appearance—the Hall Aluminum PH-1 was considerably cleaner than any of the rest. The second was weight—the Hall version was much lighter. The heaviest of the lot, the NAF PN-9 had a maximum takeoff weight of 18,069 pounds compared to the Hall XPH-1’s featherweight 13,228 pounds. The XPH-1 made its first flight on October 29, 1929, and flew 288 hours before being static tested to destruction at the NAF in 1932.

The Hall performed significantly better in the air and on the water, and was rewarded with three contracts. The Navy bought nine as the PH-1s (Hall’s largest order ever), each costing a princely $53,778 (plus government-furnished equipment). The last one was surveyed in February 1941, with a total of 2,121 flight hours—an average of about 236 flight hours per year, not bad for the prewar days.

Unlike with any other peacetime U.S. military aircraft, the basic design was called back into production on two more occasions. The Coast Guard loved the airplane for its rough-sea handling qualities—it could take off in 5-foot waves in 17.7 seconds. It bought seven in 1936 as the PH-2, then purchased an additional seven as PH-3s in 1939, 10 years after the original Hall variation had been laid down. PH-3s flew well into World War II on antisubmarine patrol.

The second contract, for a fighter, was an altogether different proposition, an original aircraft that showed Hall’s penchant for structure rather than streamlining. Hall personally assessed each part, analyzing it statically and dynamically to ensure that strength was adequate while weight was at a minimum.

The XFH-1 looked fairly conventional except for the unusual manner in which its upper wing was swept back 6 degrees while the lower wings were swept forward 6 degrees—to improve forward visibility. The exterior was conventional, concealing the buoyant, water-tight fuselage. But it was the monocoque structure of the fuselage that set it apart. Hall had developed a variety of flanged closed aluminum tubing shapes. He used these extensively, concentrating two, three or four of the tubes as the load requirements dictated. These tubes were used extensively throughout the XFH-1 and all of Hall’s later aircraft.

In the XFH-1’s wing spar structure, the multiple tubes were cambered in such a way that the air-loads straightened—and strengthened—the spar. The wing drooped slightly on the ground, but was absolutely straight at its maximum flight loading. Much of the XFH-1 and other Hall products’ structure were conventional, with bulkheads built up of drawn sections, riveted and then reinforced with gussets and angles of steel.

The XFH-1 was tested at Anacostia from September 25, 1929, through February 3, 1930. It was not as fast as contemporary Boeing or Curtiss Navy fighters, obtaining a top speed of only 153 mph from its 450-hp Pratt & Whitney R-1340 engine. Yet it demonstrated the value of its watertight hull on February 18, 1930, when an engine failure forced a test pilot to land on the water. The flier didn’t have time to jettison the wheels (a feature Hall had thoughtfully included), and the impact resulted in some leaks. Even so, the fuselage was only about one-quarter full when it was recovered almost two hours later.

The Navy ordered the largest American flying boat since the Curtiss NC-4 on June 30, 1930. It was the Hall XP2H-1, a handsome biplane similar in appearance to the smaller British Short Singapore III. Four 600-hp Curtiss V-1570-54 engines were mounted in tandem pairs in a streamlined installation. With a maximum gross weight of 44,000 pounds, the XP2H-1 had a top speed of 139 mph, not bad for its size.

The XP2H-1 had all the Hall standard features of construction, including a hull that had been scaled up from that of the PH-1. Probably the largest single-bay biplane ever built, the XP2H-1 had a wingspan of 112 feet and used the Clark Y airfoil that Hall favored. The trapezoidal wing had a long center section with a chord of 185 inches, its outer panels tapering to 85 inches at the top. The wings had the typical Hall internal structure, and were covered with sheet metal and braced with struts and wires.

One unusual characteristic of the Hall series was the ailerons, which were mounted via a continuous hinge on the top surface of the wings, sealing them off for beneficial aerodynamic effect. An old friend of mine, Earl George, who worked on the XP2H-1, recalled that attaching the ailerons was a time-consuming, knuckle-slicing job.

The normal crew of six saw the pilot and co-pilot seated side by side in the enclosed cockpit. An open bow position was available for a bombardier and to aid with mooring operations. The navigation and radio equipment compartment was just behind the pilots, and behind this were Spartan living quarters for long flights. The flight mechanic was situated farther to the rear, with a complex set of controls to monitor the engines and the elaborate fuel tank system.

The first flight was almost a disaster. Experienced test pilot Bill McAvoy was at the controls when the aircraft pitched up on takeoff. He stop-cocked the controls, got the nose down and taxied back, to find that the elevator had been installed in reverse.

The XP2H-1 was delivered to the Navy on October 1, 1932, and proceeded to demonstrate a remarkable performance for a big biplane flying boat. With a full load of 3,360 gallons of gasoline, the optimized range was an amazing 4,560 miles. As the fuel was burned off, engines were shut down, and the final leg of an endurance flight was completed on two engines. The specification called for a 1,500-foot altitude capability with two engines out. The big plane could actually climb on just the two front engines, and easily maintained altitude on the two rear engines. With one engine out it could maintain 7,000 feet, quite a performance for the time given that the propellers were fixed pitch. (The two forward propellers had a left-hand rotation, while the two rear propellers rotated to the right.)

Its sea handling qualities were excellent, allowing the XP2H-1 to take off from 6-foot waves in 21.5 seconds. But the structure was not as strong as the Navy liked, which would have unfortunate results later. An unusual feature was an “auxiliary power unit,” a gasoline engine used to raise the anchor.

The XP2H-1’s day in the sun came in 1935, when it made a nonstop flight from Norfolk, Va., to Panama in 25 hours and 15 minutes. It was commanded by Lieutenant John S. “Jimmy” Thatch, who seven years later would make history in fighter aviation with his development of the Thatch weave.

Despite the record attempt, new monoplane flying boats were already demonstrating that the XP2H-1 was obsolete, and there were no follow-on orders. The aircraft was destroyed when it broke up after making an open-sea landing later in 1935. The handsome XP2H-1 was the very last in the long line of U.S. military biplane flying boats.

Charles Ward Hall died on August 21, 1936, in the crash of a lightplane he had designed and manufactured, the Monoped, so called because of its single main wheel landing gear. He missed seeing the first flight of the most beautiful airplane his company would create, the very advanced Hall Aluminum XPTBH-2. Built to a Navy specification that called for patrol, torpedo and bombing capability, the XPTBH-2 was a streamlined twin-float monoplane that featured a single huge tubular aluminum spar which supported all flight and sea loads. Two cantilever floats, derived from the standard Hall flying boat hull configurations, made it possible for the aircraft to drop a full-size destroyer-type torpedo.

McAvoy again served as the test pilot on the successful first flight of the XPTBH-2. It went through some minor modifications and was much appreciated for its 182-mph top speed when tested at Anacostia. Navy requirements had changed, however, and no additional XPTBH-2s were ordered. The aircraft was destroyed at the Naval Torpedo Station at Newport, R.I. Time had at last run out for Hall Aluminum, and the company accepted an offer from Consolidated for its assets and patents. Many Hall employees joined the new firm.

While no Hall Aluminum aircraft survives today, the ideas of Charles Hall live on not only in aircraft using aluminum structure but also in designs featuring new composite materials, in which maximum strength at minimum weight is still a goal.
