The Luscombe Phantom, also known as the Luscombe Model 1, first flew in 1934 and was manufactured between 1934-1937.

The Luscombe Phantom, also known as the Luscombe Model 1, first flew in 1934 and was manufactured between 1934-1937. 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. NC1043 (serial #114), owned by Andrea and Kevin Eldridge, was the 14th Phantom built. After restoration, it will be the third of the original 25 Phantoms to fly again. The Eldridges have spent over ten years in this labor of love, researching and restoring this Phantom for its return to the skies in 2023. With painstaking care, they have returned it to its original beauty. It was recently given its landing gear for the first time in 47 years. It was also reunited with the original Super Scarab 145 hp radial engine that was installed at the factory behind the distinctive restored Watters cowling. Each is an individual piece of art, with variations and imperfections that are not product flaws, they are part of the beauty of PlaneTags. Caution: Not recommended for children under 8 years of age. This product contains chemical-based paint which may cause respiratory irritation if ingested or inhaled in large quantities. Keep out of mouth.
