FORT WORTH — An Florida-based investor group says it's agreed to buy the name of bankrupt Legend Airlines.
Tampa, Florida-based Viking Resources International says it wants to resume flights from Dallas to New York and Washington, DC, using four of Legend's DC-Nines.
Viking CEO Thomas Patterson tells the Fort Worth Star-Telegram that he's still lining up financing.
A Dallas attorney who represents the bankruptcy trustee confirmed that the trustee has informally agreed to sell the Legend name to Viking, contingent on financing.
Viking Resources tried to buy Legend's name and some assets in March. But it couldn't raise the estimated $25 million it would take to buy the Legend name and resume service.
The firm made an unsuccessful attempt to buy bankrupt Kiwi Airlines in 1999.
