The Silvaire, an all medal "personal plane," was manufactured by Luscombe Airplane Corporation, which moved its facilities from Trenton, NJ to a 500-acre tract west of Garland in 1945. Shown on a Silvaire's wing in the late 1940's are 28 plant employees weighing a combined weight of 3,500 pounds. The Luscombe installation formed the genesis of the current Raytheon,E-Systems plant here.
