A 2 seater Butterfly, designed by Guy Francois of Brussels. He produced quite a number of ultralight designs, all apparently substantial modifications of the Mignet Pou-du-Ciel design?

One track wins on designer/builder.  But not all tandem wings are modified mignet designs - these are mignet formula but not modified mignet.
