1947 Howard Hughes' "Spruce Goose" flies for 1st (& last) time









Unless you see it in person, it's so hard to describe how huge it really is. Here's a few shots from our visit to the Evergreen Aircraft Museum

I remember being surprised that it could even get off the ground it is so huge.

That was a great trip. Except when I lost you for a little while. Hmmm. You lost me in the grocery and then the museum. Hey! Am I just starting to see a pattern here?

LOL. ;)

So in other words it's a little bigger than a Pipper Cub?
