Is it an RV 12?

I'm pretty sure it's a KR-2 homebuilt.

These KR's by Ken Rand of Huntington Beach were constructed like surf boards. I spent a lot of time shaping foam.

Many of them got early Volkswagen motors.  Engine failure likely wasn't a Rotax.

Did anybody observe flaps on that airplane? I did not see any on his low approach, rollout or ground handling off the highway.

That may account for . . . what appeared to me, as a high touchdown speed and some PIO.

He did a good job for what he had to work with.
