Boeing P-26 Peashooter Designed as a pursuit monoplane for the USAAC, the P-26 was first flown on March 20th, 1932. Affectionately nicknamed "Peashooter," the P-26 was the first all-metal production fighter. Its wings were braced with wire rather than rigid struts, which created less drag and allowed for greater maneuverability and faster flight—so fast, in fact, that landing flaps had to be added to slow the aircraft down upon final approach. The cockpit area sat forward of center, and the pilot had nothing but a small windscreen to protect his face and a protruding headrest to protect his head.
