HOWARD HUGHES AND
THE BIGGEST (WOODEN)
PLANE IN HISTORY
This might be very interesting to all you aviation lovers.
Because of wartime rationing on strategic materials such as aluminium, this plane was built almost entirely out of wood. A skeptical press dubbed it “The Spruce Goose.”
The aircraft is now displayed at the Evergreen Aviation & Space Museum in McMinnville, Oregon, United States and remains in good condition.
Clancy's comment: I guess you can do almost anything if you have the money. Imagine the skills required by the wood workers.
