Postcard From The Evergreen Aviation & Space Museum

Evergreen Aviation & Space Museum in McMinnville, Oregon

One of my most-looked-forward-to stops was the Evergreen Aviation & Space Museum in McMinnville, Oregon.  The highlight of the visit was getting to see Howard Hughes’ H-4 Hercules aircraft, most commonly known as the “Spruce Goose.”

Wikipedia has a good summary of the aircraft and how it ended up in Oregon for anyone who is interested.

    1. Yes, and the problem was that Hughes was such a perfectionist that by the time the plane was actually built, the U-boat problem it was intended to solve had already been solved by other means. A fascinating story, for sure. And an enormous achievement for that time period.
