The Luscombe 8 was a series of high wing monoplanes designed in the late 1930s. The Model 8 used the new horizontally-opposed small engines that had just been developed by the engine manufacturers, followed in the Luscombe tradition of using no wood in the construction, and had a monocoque fuselage with fabric-covered metal wings.

Donated by Mr. James D. Genis.
