I've seen this aircraft flying above EHDR, for a moment you'll think UFO's do really exist!

I believe I saw this one at EBZR once. They radioed the pilot to ask him about the type of plane he was flying, and he replied 'delta'. A few minutes later, everyone on the airfield stood outside to have a look at this strange bird...

To the other vistitor from Belgium: I must have been standing next to you, I heard and saw the same thing! The elevator trim on this bird is nothing more than a piece of bendable iron with a servo engine, very unique.

Probably the closest attempt to recreate a bumblebee. Cool!

a few question to the owner of the "aircraft" in question;(1) wheres the engine & what kind is it.
(2)and how much leg room is there (if theres any) in the cockpit.
if any body has some answer please post.

The Verhees Delta is a regular visitor at EBZR. You can see this weird aircraft at the fly-in at EBZR and sometimes at the photo flight days. This guy sits on his fueltank. In such a small aircraft, I wouldn't like that!

Excellent shot, a unique aircraft indeed. I love how the spinner blends almost flawlessly with the aircraft. If I were to ever build one, (Assuming it's a kit plane) I'd name it "Kelly Johnson's Go Kart"

My goodness, it's a flying empenage. It might be a prop out of a James Bond movie where the bad guys tried to shoot James's plane down but he just quips something witty at them and flys away in the empenage. Oh Q, you've done it again. The tightness of this shot really makes it great for those of us who haven't seen this aircraft before.
