Timm N2T Tutor

Timm N2T Tutor picture
The Timm Aircraft Corporation introduced a method of aircraft construction that involved the use of a plastic-bonded plywood which they themselves had developed. In 1941 they designed a two-seat light aircraft using this material, which came to be known as the S-160-K. The U.S. military took an interest in the aircraft because it used non-conventional materials in its construction. The U.S. Navy tested two aircraft and eventually issued contracts for 260 models that were designated the N2T-1 Tutor. Deliveries of the N2T-1s began in 1943, and they remained in use as primary trainers until towards the end of 1944.
Additional information on this aircraft can be found at Wikipedia here.
