Dayton-Wright T-4 Messenger

01/31/2015. Remarks by Johan Visschedijk: "Based upon experience with the man-controlled Bug testbed, the single-seat Messenger was similarly-powered by a 37 hp DePalma four-cylinder air-cooled engine. The fuselage consisted of longerons with veneer sides and wooden strips instead of wires. The sole aircraft built was shown at the Aeronautical Exhibition, Madison Square Garden, New York City, during March 1 to 15, 1919, but development was abandoned later in the year. Contemporary reports refer to it as an intended army liaison type adapted for civil use."
