The Luscombe Endowment’s “WIN ME” promotion kicked off in 2008, with pilots buying tickets for the chance to win a variety of prizes, including the grand prize: A Luscombe T8F.
In a drawing held June 7, Moiya Linden of Wickenburg, Ariz., won the grand prize. The official presentation of her prize is tentatively slated at this summer’s AirVenture in Oshkosh, according to endowment officials, who note Linden plans to give the airplane to her son (lucky guy!)
Other winners include:
- Garmin GPS: James Ryan, Kingston R.I.;
- Icom Radio: Tracy Martin, Clayton Ga.;
- $250 gift purchase certificates: Buddy Wood, Corpus Christi, Texas, James Stephenson, Benson, N.C.;
- A copy of “THE LUSCOMBE” book: Bill Huson, Georgetown, Maine, Randy Hand, Billings, Mont.;
- A copy of “THE GOLDEN AGE OF LUSCOMBE” book: Benjamin Bailey, Altus, Okla., Tony Ginn, Rosamond, Calif.
The Luscombe Endowment provides technical support, many new and used parts, components, and dozens of raw materials used for the repair and restoration of Luscombe airplanes. “We strive to keep the Luscombe fleet maintained and supplied, so that many more people will learn the unique historical significance of the Luscombe airplanes,” said Doug Combs, endowment official.
Early bird entries for the 2011 drawing for a completely restored Luscombe 8F are now being accepted. Combs notes that prompt ticket purchases qualify you for the drawings, as well as cash prizes in November and in April 2011 when all prizes will be awarded.
