That is one HUGE airplane! Burt Rutan started Scaled Composites and designed a number of innovative aircraft, including the VariEze and LongEze. His brother, Dick Rutan was a Misty FAC in Vietnam, and test pilot for many years, including setting numerous records, including flying Voyager (Burt Rutan design) around the world with Jeana Yeager. That’s a helluva aviation family!!!
