They All Still Fly
The Legacy Flight Museum is an operational hanger, and all aircraft therein are maintained airworthy. Many can frequently be seen in the Rexburg skies. Here is a view from a T-6 Texan flying over the R Mountain.
Mormon Mustang
In December of 2006, the Mormon Mustang experienced a forced landing on the highway median in Rexburg following an engine failure. John Bagley walked away with minor injuries from a very damaged P-51 Mustang. We are very thankful that John walked away from this one. The Mormon Mustang has been rebuilt and is again airworthy.
Beechcraft Staggerwing
A biplane with an atypical backward stagger (the lower wing is further forward than the upper wing). Designed during the Great Depression and first flown in November of 1932. It was considered, during its time, to be the premier executive aircraft flying. Each Staggerwing was custom-built by hand. The natural aesthetic beauty of this magnificently restored Staggerwing has made it an uncontested classic airplane. Has a 450 H.P. Pratt & Whitney radial engine.
Duplex-Cyclone Engine
We have a floor display of the powerful Wright R-3350 Duplex-Cyclone engine that powers the Skyraider aircraft. This turbo-compound engine also powered the B-29 Superfortress of WW-II fame.

COME & SEE WHAT A TWO ROW 18 CYLINDER RADIAL ENGINE LOOKS LIKE.
Section Eight
Doug and Jeff Driscoll’s P-51D Mustang. Painted in authentic WWII colors with D-Day stripes under the wings, and six .50 caliber machine guns in the wings. You’ll frequently see this one out flying around Rexburg also.

COME IN AND ASK HOW IT GOT THE NAME "SECTION EIGHT".
Ole Yeller
Bob Hoover's Famous "Ole Yeller" P-51D Mustang. Now owned and flown by John Bagley at the Legacy Flight Museum. Has made over 1,000 Air Show performances in the United States, Canada and Mexico. Still holds the prop plane Speed Record from Los Angeles, California to Daytona Beach, Florida - 5 hours 20 minutes - established on March 29, 1985. The aircraft is powered by a Rolls Royce Merlin 12-cylinder engine, one of the most powerful inline engines ever produced.
Grumman TBM-3 Avenger
First flew in 1941. Named “Avenger” after the Japanese attach on Pearl Harbor. This torpedo-bomber entered Navy service just in time to be the star of the Battle of Midway. This particular aircraft, flying off the USS Wasp on July 28, 1945 sank two Japanese ships on the same day, a light cruiser and a destroyer escort. 9,836 were built and today only 42 remain airworthy, as this one is.
North American T-6 Texan
First flew in 1938. Known as “The Pilot Maker” because of its important role in preparing pilots for combat in WWII. The same plane served the Army Air Forces as the T-6 and the Navy as the SNJ. Has a 600 H.P. Pratt & Whitney radial engine. Over 17,000 were built and over 350 are still airworthy.

COME IN AND SEE THEM - WE HAVE TWO. 
Boeing Stearman
Army Air Corps biplane trainer developed by the Stearman Aircraft Company which was bought by Boeing in 1934. Officially named the Boeing Model 75, but still known as the “Stearman” by those who flew her. Over 10,000 were built by the end of 1945 and about 1000 are still airworthy.
Howard DGA-15
A magnificently restored Howard Aircraft Corp. plane introduced in 1940. DGAs were custom built at the time and was one of the most expensive private aircraft of the period. During WWII they were adapted by the military for support roles such as light transport and navigation training. Has a 450 H.P. Pratt & Whitney radial engine.

COME IN AND ASK WHAT D.G.A. STANDS FOR.
L-2 Grasshopper
An aerial observation plane used extensively by the Army in WWII to direct artillery fire. The Taylorcraft Model D tandem trainer was drafted into the Army in 1941 as the O-57 Grasshopper. In 1942 it was upgraded to the L-2 model. It has a 65 H.P. Continental flat-four engine. Over 1700 were built, and today about 150 are still airworthy, as this one is.
O-1 Bird Dog
An aerial observation plane used extensively by the Army in Korea and Vietnam for observation and to direct artillery fire. The civilian version was the Cessna 170. When first bought by the Army it was designated the L-19 (for Liaison) in Korea. In 1962 it was redesignated the O-1 Bird Dog and entered its second war in Vietnam. This aircraft was also the first aircraft ordered by the U.S. Air Force after it became its own branch of the service in 1947.
P-63 King Cobra
An American fighter developed in WWII but never accepted for combat by the Army Air Forces. Most were sent to Russia under the Lend-Lease program where the Russians very successfully used them in combat, both against the Luftwaffe and against German tanks with the 37mm cannon in the nose. It has an Allison 1800 H.P. V-12 engine. This is a magnificently restored fully airworthy aircraft; one of only three (3) P-63s in the world today that are still airworthy.

COME IN AND LOOK AT THE CANNON THIS AIRPLANE WAS BUILT AROUND.
Check out the Photo Gallery of some of your historic planes that we still take up in the air.

Not all air-craft are in the museum at all times. The ones not there when you visit may be up in the air, over in the maintenance hangar next door.
