This was the first stainless steel airplane, built in 1931 by the Edward G. Budd Manufacturing Company of Philadelphia, to demonstrate the practicability of its “shotweld” process of fabricating stainless steel, subsequently employed by the Budd Co. in building lightweight railroad trains. The Pioneer was flown approximately 1,000 hours in the United States and Europe. Located at the entrance of the Franklin Institute Science Museum.
