It can fly! To the amazement of naysayers around the world, on 2nd November 1947 Howard Hughes’ H-4 Hercules seaplane made its first and only flight from Los Angeles’ Cabrillo Beach. The Spruce Goose, a nickname the billionaire aviator loathed, was actually built of birch wood, according to wartime rationing of metals. Part-boat and part-plane, at 300,000 pounds in weight, it was the largest of its kind ever built with the largest wingspan of any aircraft to have flown – 320 feet. Having not been completed in time for its original objective, to cargo tanks and troops across the ocean, the ‘Flying Lumberyard’ now resides at the Evergreen Aviation & Space Museum in Oregon.
