Another sport plane inspired by the famous North American Mustang is the Bushby Midget Mustang. This little single-seater attains incredible speeds propelled by a Lycoming 125-hp powerplant. Its sleek appearance is due to its all-metal construction. Fabrication is simple. Only two simple wooden jigs are required, but Bushby can supply components or full kits that eliminate virtually all metal bending.
