Whoa!!! That is awesome! I mentioned the P&W Turboprop only because
we have a SNJ T6 here at Montgomery field, San Diego. I’ve been up
twice in it, doing every combat maneuver we could. I have about
30 hours in a 172 (from long long ago) so the pilot let me do
every-other maneuver. He did one then let me do one. I think all
Pantera owners should do this!! It’s a thrill that you will never
forget. Maybe I’ll scan in the pictures and send out a link.
