Caption Contest #58 Winner - Early Burt Rutan?

 It was the avgeek and caption expert 'Race 5' that came thru once again with this brilliant caption for the 5 person hang glider in contest #58. It's a truly inspired piece of work. So, it's another bacon sandwhich at OSH11 for Race 5! 

 And, just in case you don't get it... Burt Rutan's first really big success in the airplane design biz back in the mid 70's was called the VariEze (Very Easy) - but it's interesting to note that a lot of people were confused about how to say the name. It was common to see people calling it the 'Very Ease' instead of 'Easy', so this caption kinda pulls all of it together. It got my vote!

 As always, there were a great batch of captions this time around... and of course, a big thank you goes out to everyone who submitted one (or two or three), and to all who voted in the poll. And since Monday was Memorial Day, we'll skip a week and then probably be back with another chance at Oshkosh bacon next week.
