The years between World Wars 1 and 2 - the Golden Age of Flight - was an incredible time as airplanes transformed from slower wood and fabric covered biplanes to faster, all-metal monoplanes. Civil aviation expanded, distance and speed records were made and broken, men and women pilots competed in cross country races. Donald A. Luscombe realized his dream to design and build a light, all-metal monocoque aircraft - the Luscombe Phantom.
The Luscombe Phantom, also known as the Luscombe Model 1, first flew in 1934 and was manufactured between 1934 and 1937. The side-by-side, two-seat cabin aircraft was of all metal construction, using a stressed-skin Duralumin fuselage. All components were built by subcontracted manufacturers then assembled and finished by Luscombe Aircraft Development Corporation at its West Trenton, NJ production facility. It was powered by a single 145-hp Warner “Super-Scarab” seven-cylinder radial engine. Only 25 were built.
*IMPORTANT NOTICE – PLEASE READ CAREFULLY
PlaneTags are made from actual retired aircraft fuselage, not merely stamped metal. Because they are made from real fuselage, each one bears the colour, thickness, and wear and tear from the portion of the fuselage from which it was cut and it is therefore rare to create two identical PlaneTags. These variations and imperfections are not product flaws. They are part of the beauty of PlaneTags. As a result, you will have a limited option to select the colour of your PlaneTag. The images on this website are provided for reference only and should not be used as the sole basis for choosing a particular PlaneTag.
