"Flighttest" magazine - LOOP Annual 2007 LOOP magazine's FLIGHTTEST 2007 Annual issue (from the UK) shows this great photo of James Tannock's Zodiac CH 601 in England. 

The magazine writes that "the Zenith Zodiac shows that a relatively low-tech aircraft, built traditionally, can still deliver hugely enjoyable flying and take you places for very little money."
(FLIGHTTEST magazine, LOOP annual 2007 issue, page 126, by Dave Calderwood).

The Vegas in their Zodiac XL

December 2007:
Juan Vega with his son (in a booster seat) in the Zodiac XL (by Tampa, Florida):

"Too much fun!  We flew on a nice day to the Sun'n Fun Air Museum, then climbed to 8,000 ft to watch the space shuttle take off.  Can you say best seat in the house? When the launch was canceled we then cruised over to Crystal River Airport for ice cream."
