Model: Silvaire 8F Registration: N9921C
Year: 1959 Serial Number: S-25
Engine: Continental C-90 Owner: John Hery
Location: Red Stewart Airport, Waynesville, OH Photographer: Stoltzfus, Ken
Date: 2003, August Present Registration: Present Owner (FAA info):
Notes: 9/1/03 - Mr. Hery had owned this beautiful Luscombe 8F for only two weeks when he brought it to the fly-in at Red Stewart Airport, and he was sure pleased with it. I would be too. You have to wait patiently, if you want photos of an airplane like this without a crowd standing around!

N9921C was built by Silvaire Aircraft in Ft. Collins, CO in 1959. It is all-metal, two place, full electric, and has a fuel tank in each wing totaling 25-gallons. That's enough to get you between potty breaks. This Luscombe is quite original except for having Cessna 150 seats and modern avionics.

Knowing that the 8F has flaps, I asked Mr. Hery if he would put them down for me for a photo. Well, it turns out that some 8F's have flaps and some don't. This one doesn't! One nice thing about life is that we can learn something every day.

Notes: "Sweet", as one of my grandsons would be prone to say. Wheel pants just do something to an airplane like this.

Notes: Sticks, and a GPS - - the best of the old and the new. That's pretty much a "stay out of the clouds" panel. It looks like it has heel brakes on the left side only.

Notes: The characteristic Luscombe tail. Not radical, but they do have their own shape as compared to other aircraft.

Notes: When you see it from a distance you might wonder if it is a Cessna 140 or a Luscombe. Those notches at the wing root give the Luscombe away every time.
