… that today is Spruce Goose Flight Day? The world’s largest wooden plane, the 200-ton Spruce Goose, was flown by billionaire Howard Hughes over Long Beach harbor on November 2, 1947. At that time, it was the world’s largest airplane ever flown. Hughes flew it only one time for 26 seconds to a height no greater than 50 feet for a distance of less than a mile. But that was enough for it to be considered the largest wingspan aircraft that has ever flown.~~~
