My friend told me he saw a weird plane today. I asked him to describe and this is what he said:

Single prop in front
about 8 windows
No tail fin

Any help would be appreciated cause he will not shut up.

I would go with a Pilatus

If memory serves me correctly, it could be called the Phoenix and is made by Ruton. Try a search on that  Smile

No, can't be a PC-12, that has a tail fin and less then 8 windows. Sounds more like something built by Bert Rutan, but I can't find any pics on his nor this site.

I think it could be something similar to this, with the prop in front and no tail. I have seen this "thing" before as well but didn't find any pictures ...
