Two photographs of N72TZ can be found, seemingly taken moments apart. It was a sleek, attractive airplane, painted a deep claret color, with sinuous lines — the sort of airplane amateur designers love to sketch. Its general arrangement resembled that of the three-surface Piaggio Avanti, with a T-tail, a small canard and pusher engines set inboard on the wings. Its ground attitude appears to have been a bit nose-low, like that of many jets. From its shadow — the sun stood more or less at the zenith when the photographs were taken — one can see that the areas of its three surfaces, relative to one another, were roughly similar to those of the Avanti. It was shorter-coupled, however, and the mainplane was located approximately amidships, whereas that of the Avanti is farther from the canard.
