The bridge earned the nickname ‘Galloping Gertie’ as it twisted and buckled in high winds.

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.
