    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)" ?

    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!
