If you are talking about the salute to Rutan site pictures I posted a link to, I'm thinking of removing the link - it may be hostile.

Many of the same photos on a Rutan featured Facebook page.

Scaled Composites Long-EZ "Borealis"
https://www.nationalmuseum.af.mil/Visit/Museum-Exhibits/Fact-Sheets/Display/Article/195765/scaled-composites-long-ez-borealis/

Quote:
In January 2008, this modified Scaled Composites Long-EZ completed the first manned flight of an aircraft powered by a pulsed detonation engine (PDE). The flight was the result of a five-year cooperative effort between the Air Force Research Laboratory (AFRL) and Innovative Scientific Solutions Incorporated (ISSI). The project used the popular homebuilt Long-EZ designed by Burt Rutan as a platform.

Engines normally burn fuel and air at subsonic speeds to provide propulsion. Pulsed detonation engines detonate the fuel-air mixture to produce repeated, controlled explosions. The resulting supersonic shockwaves create thrust. ........

Chi ha detto che Un Ape Piaggio non puņ volare? Chi se la ricorda? | Aviazione generale, VDS, Ultraleggeri
Easy Peasy Kach. Woulda thought you would know how.

Right click on the image, select 'View Image Info', selected image would be highlighted, right click on the highlighted image info and select copy. Then back to Pelican Parts, select the image icon and paste the image info.
