This strange looking plane is called a Long EZ. It was designed by Burt Rutan and is offered in kit form or straight plans. It is a little over 16 feet long, capable of staying in the air for 10 hours and travel over 1600 miles. No, it is not missing a front wheel. Before the pilot can get in the aircraft, he has to extend the nose landing gear. It is as bizarre looking in person as it is in the photo. An amazing piece of aeronautical engineering.
