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!

That's the first time I've ever seen the "Spruce Goose". Sweet picture

A visitor from United States posted Fri April 30, 2010:
Beautiful aircraft! Could that be Mr. Hughes himself standing on top there?

A visitor from United Kingdom posted Thu April 1, 2010:
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.
