Benjamin Krotje’s Panther SN007 took its first flight this week. Ben’s Panther N776RA is powered by the Jabiru 3300. They worked directly with Jabiru NA for the firewall forward configuration and, as you can see, it looks great. Ben’s lovely wife Katie, who is a CFI and also a Panther Plans owner, sent us a few photos.
“It climbs like a rocket, sounds awesome, and with the Jabiru it only weighs a hair over 700 lbs. I think he likes it!” – Katie Boseman
Congratulations Ben! Great work, beautiful machine! We wish you happy flying.
