Buddy Henson is the first Panther Tri-Gear builder, and the maiden flight was a success over the weekend! Buddy has built two Panthers so far, his first being the tail dragger model N142BN SN017. We are very happy for Buddy, and applaud his determination and perseverance for building two beautiful Panthers in 2.5 years. Way to go, Buddy!
Both of his builds are powered by a Lycoming O-320 (overhauled himself). The Tri-Gear is using a Sensenich Ground Adjustable 68″ prop. Here are some photos from this weekends flights.
