Plans Being Made for Pheasant Airplane's Arrival Back Home

Due to the commitment and generosity of local citizens, businesses, organizations, and several in the surrounding areas, the Pheasant Airplane Committee of the Scotland County Historical Society has met its goal of raising the $75,000 needed to purchase the Pheasant Airplane that was manufactured here in Memphis, MO in January 1928.

The recovery team consisting of Ronnie Brown, Lew Prather, Stanley Myers, Fred Clapp, and Rodney Mulvania will be leaving Memphis for Long Island, New York, on Saturday, April 14th. Don and Mary Anna Troutman and Family, owners of the 5-D Express, Inc., based at Keosauqua, IA, are providing the truck and trailer to transport the Pheasant home. Ronnie Brown will be the truck driver. The rest of the Recovery team will spend Monday the 16th preparing the Pheasant for transport, it will be loaded into the trailer Tuesday the 17th and then the Pheasant will be brought home to Memphis.

An unloading ceremony is being planned for Saturday the 21st of April. More information about this will be available the week of the 16th of April. The Pheasant will be on display this summer at the Wiggins Family Museum (Farley Building) until a permanent building is acquired.

A lot of hard work, dedication, and pride in the community have made this dream become a reality. A plaque with the names of the individuals, businesses and organizations that have made donations will be displayed with the Pheasant along with other memorabilia.
