    Can't tell for sure, but something similar to a Rutan VariEze.

    Thought it may have been a Beechcraft Starship, but on close observation, the aircraft is too small & the wing orientation is all wrong.

    I agree, it is a VariEze. A Starship is twice that size.

    Default Starship!

    Here are several starships just for comparison. In addition, I attached a picture from Rutanĺs web page that shows all their different models.

    Should be a Rutan Long EZ.
    You search it, I will find it!

    To heck with the airplane, what is the big, cone-shaped thing just N-E of the plane? Alien spacecraft? BIG windsock?
