The N-1B flew in 1927, which was the precursor to the N-2B. Hopelessly under powered with a 220 h.p Wright J-5 pusher only six were produced before moving on to the N-2B Neptune in 1928. About 40 in total were produced the first sixteen of which had an open cockpit before the adoption of an enclosed cockpit. I think that the photo on this page is of the later N-2C which featured a 450 h.p Pratt & Whitney pusher.

Power plant 1 x 300 h.p Wright J-6 pusher

Span 40'0" Length 31'0"
Range 400 miles

Veey little info out there on these planes. The Ireland Aircraft Inc. company produced flying boats from 1919 to 1938 based on their original N-1B flying boat.
