This outstanding, one-of-a-kind project is the 3rd plane built by master craftsman Dennis Jacobs. His first plane, a Jurca Tempete of all wood construction, took 12 years to build and is listed in "Jane’s All World Aircraft Encyclopedia" under French Homebuilts. His second plane, a Burt Rutan delta wing rear engine VariViggen, was a 16-year endeavor.
Jacobs logged nearly 300 hours in his VariViggen and garnered several awards, including Best Wood Construction and Best Craftsmanship. He is featured on the cover of the September 2002 issue of Sport Aviation. (The entire article can be viewed at the website: http://eaa.org/benefits/sportaviation/sept02toc.html.)

Great attention and care was paid to every detail, in every aspect of the design and construction of the Barracuda. Dennis' innovative, unique additions make it a first class, user-friendly plane that is easily maintained.
