Laird Swallow

The Laird Swallow, called the Swallow New Swallow after 1923, was first flown in April 1920.  It was a simple and efficient biplane used for price, light commercial and air-mail duties.  The basic design was progressively improved through the 1920s.  In 1928, the Swallow TP was introduced, really a new and even simpler design, having only two seats and intended primarily for training.  All together, about 500 of the various models of Swallow were built.
