The aircraft is a Bob Bushby, Mustang II, S/N 1728; the aircraft is sold as a kit, and/ or plans built. Mine was started by Gene Mall. He had the Center Section almost completed, and the flap, lost interest in the project, thus, sold it to us. We ordered in what we could from http://www.mustangaero.com/, and built it from there.
Chris Tieman, owner, and CEO was somewhat in disbelief when we gave him our very aggressive building schedule of two year, from plans to flying; we did it in twenty-two months with a lot of help from friends and family! But in the airplane world, every day delayed, adds to the bottom line cost. The aircraft is unlike the RV line, and requires a vast amount of effort on the builder; but the product is worth the effort, in gold!
The aircraft is equipped as follows:
Sam James cowls and plenum chamber….. a must have option, for a great looking/flying aircraft.
Sensenich fixed pitch prop 72 inches in length 86 inch pitch; a real cruise machine.
Superior XP IO 360 power plant with forward induction….another must have option.
AEI custom tuned exhaust…… a must have option.
Garmin GNC300 GPS/COM; Garmin 327 Transponder; Artex 406 ELT; PS Engineering PM1000II/DVR intercom; and
Lowrance 1000 GPS
The project was a fantastic learning experience, and we sure have met a lot of new friends through it.
