Unusual aircraft, help in identifying?
I saw quite an unusual aircraft in the sky this afternoon. Twin engines (wing mounted), in a pusher propeller configuration. There was a sizable horizontal stabilizer in a canard configuration. The rear of the aircraft featured the vertical stabilizer, and a somewhat smaller horizontal stabilizer. Most of the fuselage was ahead of the wings.
Quite the unusual sight! It didn't sound like your typical light twin, either. Does anyone recognize it from my description?
Firefox: Yes, that's it: the Piaggio P.180 Avanti, right down to the T-tail. Thanks!

I agree! Sounds like what you saw was a Piaggio P.180 Avanti.

Piaggio Avanti, no longer a secret agent airplane in any respect. only an Itallian made easy turboprop. they're particularly person-friendly corporation/very own plane. they're very quickly and valuable little planes, and suprisingly roomy interior. Sorry to declare that is not something specific.
