Curtiss Model 75Q

The Curtiss Model 75Q was the designation given to two demonstrator machines similar to the earlier Model 75H, with a fixed undercarriage and the same Wright R-1820 Cyclone engine. Both aircraft went to China. One, Curtiss c/n 12898, was given retractable undercarriage, and was then presented to General Claire Chennault by Madame Chiang Kai-shek. The second aircraft was flown as a demonstrator by American pilots, but was destroyed in a crash soon after taking off on 5 May 1939.
