Description A U.S. Marine Corps New Standard NT-1 (BuNo A8588) at the National Museum of Naval Aviation, Pensacola, Florida (USA), in 1983.
Official description: “The museum's NT-1 aircraft is a D-29 that was originally acquired by Mr. William T. Wilson of San Antonio, Texas, during the 1950s at a cost of just $135. It was in non-flying condition and other than some minor woodwork, Wilson did nothing with the aircraft and sold it to Bob Weller of San Antonio during the late 1950s. Eventually purchased by George Dray of Rohnert Park, California, the aircraft was acquired by the museum in 1983. It is painted in the markings of NT-1 (Bureau Number A-8558), which was the last of six NT-1s delivered to the Navy in 1930. It served at Naval Air Station (NAS) Pensacola, Florida, and Quantico, Virginia, before being stricken in 1937 with the note in its history card, "Absolute, worn out in service. Strike plane." As the Navy entered the decade of the 1930s, it sought new aircraft to incorporate in the training of naval aviators. Among those chosen for procurement was the New Standard D-29, which featured a unique cockpit design in which the instructor and student sat side-by-side in what resembled a bathtub. The Navy procured six examples of the aircraft, designating them NT-1s. However, their careers were short-lived after training flights revealed the cockpit arrangement to be by unwieldy. It also created increased drag, reducing the overall performance of the aircraft.”
