Twin Boom Long EZ mod nomination

Mojave Experimental Fly-in
Award Nomination

Title: Twin Boom Long EZ Nomination
Category: Design/Build/Test
Aircraft: Nault Long EZ

Experimenter: Tom Nault
Date: 1-2013 thru present
Author: Elliot Seguin

Argument:  Tom is attempting one of the more aggressive mods to a Long EZ in a long time.  Tom is adding two booms to the main wing that extend aft to support vertical tails, the resulting configuration being similar to the Rutan ARES mud fighter, and everyman should have an ARES.  This is the first attempt I have seen to modify a long EZ in theis way.  Tom is using old school manufacturing methods and in general the whole project beckons to another time in experimental aviation, a time that perhaps created the idea of the experimental aircraft as we now know it.
