Sky Watch Friday 5-2

To join Sky Watch Friday go to Wiggers World and sign up.



I heard a buzzing in the air which I thought sounded like a ultra-light airplane.



It was to my surprise when it turned and flew directly overhead.
It turned out to be an experimental airplane. It's was a rear driven propeller plane with an unusual wing formation. The stabilizers on the nose look like a tail section. The rear wings look as if they turn up on the ends. The front wheel must tuck away but you can see the rear wheels.

You can click on the photos to get a better look.
