Hello all, I decided to post this here..not sure if its supposed to go here but I am certain this wasn't a UFO because the propeller noise was loud and clear.

Anyway, around Easter over a very rich and wealthy part of Bedford NY, I went outside with a few family members and saw this amazing aircraft. 100% sure its not someones DJI drone or something. This was way bigger than any drone Ive seen. It could easily fit a person or two in it. I would say the span of the " wings" was around 20 ft I would say.

I snapped some photos because I never seen anything like it. My uncle said,"yah thats one of those planes the billionaires fly in"

I am intrigued and did some digging and think it was maybe one of those Cobalt luxury personal aircrafts maybe? any help would be great!

google canard wing aircraft and see if you can spot it. There are many different kinds, but that's basically what you have up there. Zaphod58 probably knows.

Hey hey hey, it COULD be a Beechcraft Starship...

There has to be at least ONE still flying despite Raytheon's best efforts to pull an EV-1 with them, doesn't there?

Rutan as bitchin as it is
the airplane has a 1 in 8 chance of going splat
and you have a 15% chance of dying in said splat.

I always though that he must have had some bitchin designs he sold to the government since his commercial stuff never did well. I wonder how many of those designs focused on space programs considering he has had his hand in the white world space program

Long EZ.


Except the OP image plane's dihedral is not the same as the Long EZ.

Maybe a variant?
or it could be an Airelle Aeronix.


Matches the slight dihedral of the OP's image

I'm starting to think one of the questions I asked was answered by smart asses. I need to dig up that thread. I saw a bizarre looking small plane fly overhead and when I looked up the answers from ATS, the best match was some crazy low production plane, like 15 built.

Now I think there was snickering.

I agree with Zaph. It is a Rutan Long EZ, IMO.

Hey Phage, I think you may like Burt Rutan! He has written several pieces on AGW. Google it and enjoy!
