the single most recognized aviation feat of Howard
Hughes, the Hughes Flying Boat, a.k.a. the "Spruce
Goose," has been seen by millions over the years
at it's original restoration site in Long Beach next
to the Queen Mary.
the early '90s, the Spruce Goose was moved from Long
Beach to its current location in McMinnville, Oregon,
home of Evergreen International Aviation's "Evergreen
Aviation Museum." Long time friend of Howard
Hughes and a member of the Hughes Airwest Board of Directors,
Jack Real was very much involved in the project.
