    Abrams P-1 Explorer ... it was the first aircraft especially designed as a photo survey aircraft. Talbert ("Ted") Abrams was an aerial photographer who needed a special plane for that purpose. As there was nothing available, he designed one, together with Kenneth Ronan. The latter built the plane together with Mt Kuhl. The only Explorer (X-19897) was first flown in 1937. The shape of the aircraft was good for its duty as a photo-survey aircraft. It was extensively used until the outbreak of WWII, when it was no longer needed and put in storage. The plane was donated to the National Air and Space Museum, where it is stored at present.

    The cockpit looks like it came from the Sikorsky XR-5.
