Loening-Milling Tractor Biplane. Late in 1914, when the Army's pusher-type trainers were proving so unreliable, the Army's civilian engineer Grover C. Loening and Army Lt T. D. Milling jointly designed a new tractor biplane that was structurally and aerodynamically far behind the earlier Curtiss Models J and N. Since this was designed at North Island, Loening and Milling arranged for Curtiss to build it in his North Island factory.
  The work was done largely by Curtiss students and the tractor was delivered on 30 December. It was unacceptable and was not purchased by the Army.

The Loening-Milling biplane was not a Curtiss design but was built in the Curtiss shops at North Island and filled with a Curtiss Model S engine.
