I am trying to identify which monoplane aircraft were flown by the U.S. Army Air Service during its brief 1918-1926 existence in a largely biplane era. So far, I have come up with two:

--Fokker T-2 transport/ambulance
--Verville-Sperry R-3 racer

Can anyone think of any more?

Cheers,

Matthew

PS--U.S. Navy or Marine Corps monoplanes from the same period would also be helpful.

The Loening M-8. Two prototypes completed and tested by the Army (USAAS Serial Nos. 40121 and 40122). Another 53 built by Loening and the Naval Aircraft Factory (NAF) for the US Navy.

Thanks, good call on the M-8, and that reminds me of the little Loening M-2 Kitten and similar M-3 for the Navy.

And a few Fokker D.VIIIs in American hands post-WWI, but that's probably cheating. Still, they were followed by a dozen V-8 powered Fokker PW-5s, basically a re-engined D.VIII.

There were a few other Fokker monoplanes in small numbers with the USAAS as well.
