Phantom Biplane - Reno Racer

Tom Aberle's PHANTOM is a true success story. Built in less than 8 months, it took top qualifier at its
first competition and top qualifier and winner in its first race (with new records in the class). Building the
airplane in that short order meant that it was never drawn on paper or wind tunnel tested. Talk about
seat of the pants flying. This custom built ($100,000.00+), high performance speed machine, is the only
one of it's kind. Still airworthy, you can see it racing at over 300 mph at the Reno Air Races.
