Lawson M.T.2, of which a single prototype was built for military tests and flown in mid-1918. The Air Service placed an order 100 planes, but the war ended and the order was cancelled before any could be built. The prototype flew until 1931 -- a rather extraordinary record for a wood and canvas experimental -- when an inexperienced 17-year-old pilot crashed it at New Sweden, Maine. He was unhurt but the plane was a write-off.
