Beachey Tractor. Although he had left the Curtiss Exhibition Company in 1911 to do his own air show work, Lincoln Beachey retained a preference for Curtiss aeroplanes. Believing that the tractor type would be advantageous in his work, Beaehey collaborated with Curtiss early in 1913 on the design of a single-seat open-fuselage tractor biplane powered with a 90 hp Curtiss OX engine.
  The tractor did not perform as expected, and Beachey had a scaled-down Curtiss pusher type built by Warren Eaton and later a tractor monoplane by Glenn L. Martin. He was killed when the Martin broke up in the air at San Francisco on 14 March, 1915.
