LEGENDS YEAR-BY-YEAR

2004

After a long restoration, TFC’s P-39Q Airacobra Brooklyn Bum 2nd makes its debut; following an even longer (27-year) restoration, David and Mark Miller’s Dragon Rapide G-AGJG appears for the first time, leading six-ship Rapide 70th anniversary flypasts. The Breitling Super Constellation and Bernard Chabbert’s Lockheed 12 F-AZLL are further transport stars. Polikarpov I-15bis FLA RF-02089 from Aviarestoration is brought over from Russia to display, being aerobated splendidly by Oleg Fedorov — it stays for a few seasons, only ever appearing at Legends.
