I was out at CMS for a SCCA race today (Sunday), looked up in the sky about 1:15, thought maybe someone was flying a drone over. As it got a bit closer I realized it was a canard. Anyone wish to confess?

 

Kent, was that you?

They make a unique sound in the air, don't they?  I look up at most all airplane noises, but canards and the Piaggio Avanti really catch my ear.

Jon,

I couldn't hear it, lots of noise from the racetrack drowning out everything else...

 

I just looked up for some reason, it was not directly over CMS. Might have been taking off from Concord regional airport. Did seem to be gaining altitude as it went by.

 

Sure was pretty though.
