Spruce Goose

Evergreen Air Museum, McMinnville, Oregon

"WOW! Just had to Phoon by it!" --Jan

"This plane grew out of an idea Henry Kaiser had and was originally designated the HK-1
Flying Boat. The huge plane would be made primarily of wood, saving materials critical to
the war effort. Howard Hughes took on the personal task of developing and building it for
the government during World War II and flew it just once, for over a mile." --Bob
