I noticed the props had been removed for transporting.. I was able to see this plane when it was on display in Long Beach.. The size is awesome also from viewing the interior it is hard to believe it could also fly.. I was happy to see it has been preserved at a museum in Oregon..

I usually dislike large aircraft, The H-4 Hercules is the one large aircraft I would love to fly and be around. I know it could fly again, and fly very well.
