It's massive! Great size comparison between the Hercules and the man standing on top. I hope someday someone is getting it out of the museum into the sky again.

Beautiful aircraft! Could that be Mr. Hughes himself standing on top there?

I believe Mr. Hughes passed away some years before this picture was taken. But, of course, he left us this curious and quite spectacular creation!
