I clearly remember when this plane was being built, and I have seen countless hundreds of photos of it; this photograph, in my opinion, is the best photograph ever taken of the Hughes Hercules. And hanging suspended, at night, from a huge crane........simply unbelievable!

A rare shot of Howard Hughes' glory and downfall.

And I still find it amusing that machines from the past all had 'pet' names; Spruce Goose, Herman the German..
