The Panama introduced the 5 bladed fan into the industry. That's why I didn't say the Zephyr was THE first 5-bladed Casa, 'cause it wasn't.
Casablanca played that up in its literature, but they were incorrect. There's that weird drum-looking thing that has surfaced a couple of times, and Emerson had a very early model with a huge ornate motor housing and tiny blades.

Awesome! I wasn't sure if such a fan like the older chunky four bladed only models existed with five blades. It's quite surprising that it was made at the same time as the more popular four bladed equivalent.
1981 is the first year of the Hang-Tru too.
I'm curious about how the blade mount too. Is it an adaptor or it's an actual five bladed flywheel? It looks like there's an adaptor.
