More Rutan

The Boomerang, another Burt Rutan design, shows off its style during the afternoon air show at AirVenture. Rutan is best known for these unique, innovative airplane designs, many of which were first seen by eager homebuilders annually at AirVenture. Planes like the VariViggen (his first design), VariEze, and Long-EZ (his self-described "best" homebuilt); one-off marvels like the Boomerang, Voyager, GlobalFlyer, Grizzly, and SpaceShipOne; and, most recently, SpaceShipTwo and WhiteKnightTwo all made their public debuts at Oshkosh.
