Rawdon T-1     N5161     (c/n  T1-7)


                                             A prototype Model R-1 two-seat tandem low-wing monoplane was flown by the Rawdon
                                             Brothers in 1938.  It was hoped that their rugged little trainer would be yet another of the
                                             machines embraced by the CPTP war-time pilot-training program.   When war-time contracts
                                             were not forthcoming the design was shelved, but re-emerged in 1947 as the Model T-1.
                                             Only about 35 were built, many of which were converted as crop-dusters, with the back seat
                                             space being used for the hopper.  This photograph is via the Jennifer Gradidge collection.
