Curtis Hawk P-6E History: The P-6E, a first-line pursuit aircraft of the early 1930s, was the last of the fighter biplanes built in quantity for the Army Air Corps. Originally designated the Y1P-22, it was later redesignated the P-6E because of the similarity to the other P-6 series airplanes. Although it was never used in combat, it is remembered as one of the most beautiful biplanes ever built. Despite its excellent performance, only 46 P-6Es were ordered because of the shortage of funds for the Air Corps during the austere days of the depression. The P-6E is the last fighter biplane made for the Army Air Corps in the early 1930?s. It was an American aircraft and considered as one of the most beautiful biplanes ever made but it was never used in combat. The Curtis Hawk P-6E?s served from 1932 onwards. They were in the service for the army until 1937 but the aircrafts were involved in a lot of accidents. That is why it became obsolete during the 1930?s. Instead of being modified, the Hawks were worn out in service or crashed.
