Egret (March 16, 2017)  Regarding this photo, taken this morning on the Conservancy’s flagship preserve (“BKS”), we have a question.  Or maybe what we have is simple wonderment. That is, why aren’t more aircraft designed this way?

I mean with wings elevated significantly higher than the fuselage, er, I mean, body? And with wingspans that are longer than the body itself.  It’s a beautiful thing.
