Still no ID yet for this mystery plane.

It looks like a variant of the Piaggio P180 Avanti. Maybe a prototype. The body, nose, and main wings are the same but the tail and position of the canards are different. But the wings and pusher props scream Piaggio.

Thanks Kjitz! Your observations sent me in search of some Piaggio-like pusher prototypes and I came up with the Avtek 400.

I was there in 1984 to see you fly as I had participated in
the hopeful production of this plane that was ahead of its
time. To those who were there, it was an eye-opening experience
and sense of accomplishment of so many people.
Sadly, the financial support needed did not materialize for such a
unique aircraft that would have made corporate aviation history.

Look to the HondaJet and you may see the ghost of the 400 in a
truly modern day aircraft.
