-Hammond JH 1937 = USN version of Y-1S with similar specs and data. POP: 2 as JH-1 [0908/0909].

Tests with two Stearman-Hammond JH-1s were very secret at the time and little has been published about them. They were painted yellow, the standard for primary trainers, and classified as Utitlity (J) planes to hide their identity as one of the very first radio-controlled aircraft in the USN. Both planes were tested as unmanned drone targets for anti-aircraft fire, and both were assigned to Utility Squadron One (VJ-1). Rumors had it are that both were shot down, but there is no confirmation of this, and the aircraft history card for [0908] simply says "crashed 11/7/38," and [0909] was stricken off on 9/13/38, according to a Confidential letter from the Officer in Charge of Radio-Controlled Aircraft, Base Force, Utility Wing.
