      Gobeavs,

      Great pictures. The size of the Spruce Goose is just difficult to comprehend. A brief factoid about the Goose. It was designed to transport troops from the U.S. to the U.K. to avoid the U-Boat threat, but by the time it was operational the Battle of the Atlantic had been won by the Allies. After that it was just a Howard Hughes obsession.

      Peace through superior firepower.

        Thanks. Yeah, IIRC the government cut funding, and so from then on Hughes finished it with his own money.
