Sam Hoskins bought a kit to build the Quickie Q-200 in 1981. The plane has two sets of wings. The front wings are called canards and include the plane's landing gear. Note: there's no horizontal stabilizer on the tail. This is just one of many unusual planes at the 2016 AirVenture air show in Oshkosh, Wisconsin.
For obvious reasons, this plane has been dubbed Breezy RLU-1. It's a single-engine aircraft based in New Smyrna Beach, Florida.
Based in Prescott, Arizona, this Long-EZ model was built in 1994. It weighs just 950 pounds, empty. Cruising speed: 200+ mph. Landing speed 65-70 knots.
This 2007 kit experimental airplane is called Velocity XL-RG. It's based in Waukesha, Wisconsin. Note its rear propeller, which is designed to push the plane through the air -- unlike forward-mounted props, which pull their planes through the air.
This standout kit single-engine plane spotted at Oshkosh is a 2011 Seawind 3000.
Defiant is based in Reston, Virginia, and was built in 2005.
Matt Tisdale built this AirCam experimental plane from a kit and flew it more than 11 hours from Greenville, South Carolina, to the AirVenture air show in Oshkosh.
The AirCam can also be converted to a seaplane version.
