Sperocco homebuilt

It is gray and subdued, an understated exterior for a smooth custom homebuilt firmly rooted in the plans of the legendary Marcel Jurca. But the Sperocco that visited AirVenture Oshkosh 2021 reveals a number of structural and aerodynamic touches applied by owner/builder Lowell Manary, EAA Lifetime 52692.
