Tucker LGT-1 Le Petite Cygne

07/31/2009. Remarks by Walter van Tilborg: "The one-of-a-kind LGT-1 Le Petite Cygne (Little Swan) was an original design homebuilt of L.G. Tucker with a mixed steel tube, wood and fabric construction. When first flown in April 1964 the aircraft had a 37 hp Aeronca E113-2 engine and an open cockpit. After a minor accident, the aircraft was rebuilt with a 40 hp Continental A40-4 and also received a cockpit canopy. Its registration was cancelled on June 25, 1983."
