A Quick Stop at the Ann Arbor Airport

As I was headed home from work tonight, I saw a plane taxiing at the Ann Arbor Airport, so I decided to stop and get a couple of pictures.
 The plane in question was a Liberty XL2 which is made by Liberty Aerospace Company in Melbourne, Florida.  It is powered by a 125 horsepower Continental Engine which gives it a top speed of 162 knots.  It can carry a pilot and one passenger.
 The design was based on a Europa Kitplane but made wider and taller.  It has metal wings with a fiberglass fuselage.  It first flew in 2012.
I will have to admit, it was a pretty nice looking plane.
