Pair of Canards over Troy, IL

Recommended Posts

Anybody know the pair of canards flying over Troy, IL (NE of St. Louis) @ 5:00 pm today?


Engine noise seemed louder, and kind of distinctive. Rotary maybe?


I ask because

1) It's the first time I've seen one (let alone two) in flight

2) I got to point it out to my kids, who thought they looked neat :cool:

3) My wife, who's been lukewarm to the whole home-built idea, commented on how fast they were.


Anyway, thanks for the experience.

I don't care, I'm still free.

You can't take the sky from me.

That would have to have been Steve Morse and I. We had left St Charles Co. and skirted St Louis Reg. (ALN) to the southwest and then over Troy heading just East of Scott Air Force Base/Midland before turning South.


He and I both have O-235s in our Long EZs.


Glad you enjoyed spotting us.
