  • Large Spruce Goose

    At the Evergreen Aviation Museum in McMinnville, Ore., Howard Hughes' famous Spruce Goose appears to be markedly bigger than everything else around it.

  • Spruce Goose tail

    The Spruce Goose's tail is 80 feet tall. That's 10 feet higher than the maximum altitude the plane reached during its one and only flight.

  • Cockpit

    The cockpit of the Spruce Goose had seating for about 20 people, the plane's crew of 10 and a backup crew.
