Les Boatright, Ed Brennan and Bob Rychel of Titusville, FL have been making progress on their Panther. Here was a quick update in their local EAA Chapter newsletter.
It’s been painted except for a couple of items like the cowling and wheel pants and Bob told me that they’d have it assembled and the engine nailed on by Sat pm! This is the Panther kit offered by SPA that they started in January of this year. I’ve visited the shop where they are building this a few times and have observed that this is a magnificent kit and is built very strong. It is a single seat aerobatic tail dragger with an O235 Lycoming power plant. They are going to have a good time flying this one! Larry
