60th Anniversary of Dyke Delta
November 1, 2022
The 2022 EAA AirVenture had several highlights for me as a
photographer and writer. There were fast planes with massive
engines, small planes with tiny engines. Pilots who flew
big jets and pilots who flew single engine props. But a highlight
is always talking with the people! This year I had the
pleasure to chat with John Dyke, a man who not only flew,
but has designed one of the most unique airplanes I have
seen around Minnesota and the Midwest.
One of the great aspects about general aviation is that there is a lot
of "design space" in the amateur built/experiment category of airplanes.
