The Scaled Composites Pond Racer (Company designation Model 158) was a twin-engine twin-boom aircraft developed for Bob Pond by Burt Rutan and his company Scaled Composites.Bob Pond commissioned the design with the idea of developing a modern aircraft that could compete with the vintage warbirds in the Unlimited Class at the Reno air races. At full throttle the plane's fuel ran short while at a reduced throttle it just couldn't keep up with the thoroughbreds.
The Beechcraft Starship: first composite airplane ever produced and only a few left. Flies at 41,000 ft and and 338 kts. One of its few owners says: "On the ramp she gathers more stares than a girl in a bikini."
