What a kick it was to learn that my best friend’s dad was an experimental airplane builder! I was just in grade school, but I remember the first time I walked into his shop/hanger and saw the skeleton of a bird that would be up and flying a couple of years later. I never got to go up in it, but I sure imagined myself there many a time.
If aircraft is an interest of yours, you’ll like this link. It’s a bit of a clearinghouse to all sorts of experiemental aircraft related sites.
Now I better get back to work on my Velocity -in my dreams!
