2007 Boeing P-26 “Peashooter” was the first American all-metal production fighter aircraft and the first pursuit monoplane to enter squadron service with the United States Army Air Corps. Designed and built by Boeing, the prototype first flew in 1932, and the type was still in use with the U.S. Army Air Corps as late as 1941 in the Philippines. There are only two surviving Peashooters, but there are three reproductions on exhibit with two more under construction.

The Boeing P-26 was a single-seat monoplane fighter aircraft that entered service with the United States Army Air Corps in 1933. It was the first all-metal production fighter aircraft and the first pursuit monoplane used by the Air Corps. The P-26 was also known as the “Peashooter” because of its small size and slender fuselage.
The P-26 had a low-wing cantilever design with a fixed landing gear and an open cockpit. It was powered by a Pratt & Whitney R-1340 radial engine that produced 500 horsepower. The P-26 had a maximum speed of 234 miles per hour and a range of 360 miles. It was armed with two 0.30-inch machine guns mounted in the nose.
The P-26 was used by several countries besides the United States, including China, Panama, Guatemala and the Philippines. The P-26 saw combat in the Second Sino-Japanese War, the Spanish Civil War and the Pacific War. The P-26 was gradually replaced by more advanced fighters such as the Curtiss P-36 and the Seversky P-35 in the late 1930s. The last P-26s were retired from service in 1945.
