Howard Hughes' Hercules - The "Spruce Goose" - It flew only once on Nov. The Hercules is the largest flying boat ever built and has the largest wingspan of any aircraft in history. They really weren't sure it would lift off - but it did.
Interesting, Which We were riding on this one The Spike Supersonic Jet. Windowless supersonic Jet lets you ride in the clouds - what you are seeing is two long monitors with cameras mounted outside the plane.
