THOMAS-MORSE SH-4

The SH-4 was one of the first aircraft obtained by the Navy that had practical military experience behind its design, several predecessor models having been sold to Britain in 1915-16 by the Thomas Aeroplane Co before its merger with Morse Chain Company to form Thomas-Morse. Fourteen SH-4s (A134-A136, A396-A406), powered with 100 hp Thomas engines, were bought by the Navy as observation and trainer types in 1917. Span, 44 ft; length, 29 ft 9 in. Performance not available.
