I learned to fly about 1949. Do you have any pictures of this airplane?

In my log book. Lost at night! Both wing-butt gages pegging empty, the Ford rotor gage behind my head dipping and showing "0" for empty. Had'nt the slights idea which way to turn for BOW! 9-24-49 2258-K Cont.65.

I soloed in a Luscombe 8A (NC25236) in 1946 on my 16th birthday, received my Private license in that same Luscombe 8A on my 17th birthday, and as a young flight instructor, I taught many to fly in Luscombes.
Luscombes had a repartition as being difficult to land. Not so!
The story I was given by the then ”Don Luscombe Historical Foundation” was the Model 10 was destroyed as a requirement when Luscombe filed for bankruptcy. Don't know why but that is the story they told me. What a prize it would be to have a flyable Model 10 today.
More Trivia: I tracked down NC25236 and flew it once again on the 50th anniversary of my solo flight.

This is one of the coolest little planes to never see production. The story I heard was that is was destroyed in a taxiing accident.
