Builders:

Rachel Weseman, aka: “Ms. Panther”, has put together an great video of builders who were making progress and running engines at Corvair College #35 at Barnwell South Carolina:

Rachel, Dan and two of their boys were on hand for the College, along with Panther team member and Corvair builder Paul Salter. We had no formal plan to film at the college, but Rachel took the initiative to capture a lot of the event.  Due to the background noise in the hangar and an indirect microphone, some sound is suppressed, but there is a lot of information in the short film. If you look closely, these is a cross section of engines, 2700, 2775, 2850 and 3000 cc. Dan’s 3.3L is also visible next to Andy Shorter’s 3000. The film is also a good chance to see builders you may have only previously read about, like Woody Harris from California.

.

There is the accomplishment of Lane Seidel and Chris Pryce’s engines running, but also the humor of Bill Reynolds explaining how he met Albert Reinhardt, Dave McBride and Katie Fox showing off their ‘stealth Pietenpol’ engine, Tim Hansen and his ‘no unicorns’ sign, and ‘Dan-o’ Glaze speaking of bringing a shovel to a College……All good stuff that gives a glimpse of the fun setting of a Corvair College, and how these events are not typical tech seminars.

For a look at many of the other videos edited by Rachel, search ‘Rachel Weseman’ on youtube, and you can see a great number of professional looking films she has made. Two ones that capture the eye are:

Above, The Weseman Panther on the flight line at Barnwell.  It has been to the Barnwell college for the last 3 Colleges in a row. FYI: Dan and Rachel are very relaxed about it, but their last name is actually pronounced “Ways-man” and the name of their company is pronounced as the letters “S-P-A” instead of the word “spa” I have never seen either of them ever correct anyone, but I share it as a general courtesy. -ww.
