Burt Rutan And Model Airplanes At AMA Expo 2010

 This video is a little over 45 minutes long, but if you have a real interest in model airplanes, airplane design, or any of the work Burt Rutan has done over the last 40 years, then I suggest you carve out some time and soak this up.  It's that good.

 It's Burt talking at the Academy of Model Aeronautics (AMA) Expo 2010 back in January.  It's a great insight into what a big role model airplanes have played in Burt's life (and career), and it showcases one of the things that make Burt so cool... he's just a real person with a cracked sense of humor and a real passion for flying machines.

 It's also good timing since I'll have my own video up soon of Burt from Oshkosh in 1984 when he and his brother Dick introduced the Voyager to the world.  Check back soon : )

Thanks for the nice blog man. I always had the same question in my mind also. Now i came to know that it has a big theory behind itself. Aircraft design has been a topic of keen interest from its nose to its engine. I’ll keep visiting the blog.
