      Rare pheasant airplane comes home to Memphis

      antique Pheasant airplane


      It was a rare homecoming in Memphis, Missouri for a plane with roots in Northeast Missouri.


      The Pheasant Airplane Association arrived back in the Tri-States Sunday with this antique Pheasant airplane.


      Pheasant airplanes were manufactured in Memphis, Missouri for a short time frame right before the Great Depression. There are only three Pheasants left in existence, and only one was for sale when Association members ran across it in a trade magazine.


      Members made the 40 hour road trip last week to New York and back to bring the plane back home.


      Eventually members hope to put it in a local museum.
