  • Dan in Spruce Goose

    During Road trip 2006, CNET News.com reporter Daniel Terdiman grabs the yoke of the Spruce Goose--Howard Hughes' famous World War II-era wood behemoth of an airplane--at the Evergreen Aviation Museum in McMinnville, Ore.

  • Front of the plane

    Viewed from its left side, the front of the Spruce Goose dominates everything around it at the Evergreen Aviation Museum.

  • Pilot's instruments

    The pilot of the Spruce Goose had dozens upon dozens of instruments to control while flying. The co-pilot, on the other hand, had very few, as he was not certified to fly the plane.
