One of only two aircraft built, one white, the other (N376LC) yellow. Both crashed, pilot error. One of the largest homebuilt experimental aircraft ever built. Dean Wilson's design is about 30'x10'x7' inside!

5 stars for rarity however something about the structure just doesn't look safe to me.

Not only a great picture, but an airplane I have never heard of. I wonder what the Foncicion Ushuaia was trying to do - and the connection between the southernmost city in the world (Argentina) and the US (the reg.) is. Very interesting, indeed.

Jim, this is a excellent photo. It was truly a one of a kind aircraft even though 2 were built. I know that Dean, Don, Chad, Mike, Kevin and I had a lot of fun and was very proud to be have been involved with the building of this fantastic aircraft.
