    PARNALL PANTHER

    Hello Forum!

    I am seeking informations about the PARNALL PANTHER cockpits. Other than Windsock Datafile, which I have already.

    Thanks in advance

    Hi
    I have been searching for anything Parnall related since I worked there in the 60's and we started researching company for K Wixey's book. Have since found this reference Applied Aerodynamics 1920 by Leonard Bairstow at the Open Library https://openlibrary.org/ Hope this helps.
    Regards

        Bristol library has an album of photos from the early days of Parnall. They are photos I've not seen anywhere else. They are not on the shelves but locked away in the archives. Reference via the cardex.

            Thanks a lot. I managed to get a copy of Wixey work. I missed it...thanks for the idea.

            From your knowledge, would it be possble to find somewhere a copy of the " Handbook on the Panther Ship Aeroplane (Ministry of Munitions 1918)" ?

                The National Archives at Kew have a copy according to Google.

                  I do have some rigging details copied from a manual that briefly came into my possession with details of many types of aircraft. Hope these are of interest.

                          Anyone know the service history/fate of the Parnall Panther’s sold to US Navy (2) and Japan (20)?

                            That 'model' is a work of art!

                              Nothing on Japanese panthers but Spain also had 2 numbers M-NPPA, M-NPPB , 1 was sent on a mission to Africa 1922

                                British & Colonial built the majority of the Parnall Panthers. Ive had access to their archive and there is no mention of Spanish Panther orders or deliveries. Do you you have a primary reference for Spanish Panthers?

                                  There are quite a few references for 2 panthers being on board Spanish vessel Dedalo. Attached a couple of relevant documents. I have not found any photographic evidence (yet).

                                      I think thats the same sheet twice? Well done though, the Smithsonian couldnt provide the documents. They said they were too delicate to copy. Its not like them to not provide copies of what they have without good reason.
