All the Looks From the ‘Vogue’ 95th Anniversary Party
As youngsters, Burt and his brother, Dick, were interested in building model airplanes. The boys would persuade their mother to drive them up and down the deserted valley roads late at night as they tested the aerodynamics of their model planes by holding the planes out of the car’s windows. Burt kept this practice up, although without his mother’s assistance, even as he went off to college. Rutan’s interest in flight was so great that he had logged his first solo flight before he earned his license to drive an automobile. Rutan’s fascination with aeronautics led him to study aeronautical engineering at California State Polytechnic University. In 1964, he was chosen to represent his university at the Space Technology Summer Institute at the California Institute of Technology (Caltech). Rutan also took coursework in the Aerospace Research Pilot’s School at Edwards Air Force Base.
