The talented crew for “Phantom” – the beautifully designed Biplane, Race #62, is analyzing one of the four cylinders for tomorrow’s race. The heat is on to beat his wining record last year of 251.975 mph and it looks like with some quick tinkering he’ll be ready to give it 100%.
Pilot Tom Aberle’s Biplane is a modified Mong Sport, which is his custom design. Tom and his crew built this aircraft in seven months! BTW, the flattering paint design was created by Leo Williams, who has also outfitted the entire crew with awesome tees for years.
Listen to the video for history of this fantastic aircraft. Thanks for the interview Tom!
Good Luck and Godspeed!
