Loening PA-1: With a lot to learn.

The PA-1 was an American pursuit (fighter) of the early 1920s. Another of the zillion of fighter aircraft unsuccessful types built in that era. Too slow and just unremarkable, only a prototype was produced. Its only claim of fame was being the first powered by an air-cooled radial (Wright R-1454)….and also to have one of the ugliest nose affair I’ve ever seen.
