(messi88)  "Spruce Goose" of Howard Hughes

The "Spruce Goose" is now in the Evergreen Aviation & Space Museum in Oregon.


On November 2 1947, Howard Hughes - a legend in his own time, a dreamer who made his dream come true - revved up the 8 massive engines of the Hughes Flying Boat, the legendary "Spruce Goose", and lifted the giant aircraft into the air for a one minute flight.
The largest plane ever built flew no higher than 20 m and covered less than 1 mile.
