Come along on a tour of the Howard Hughes H-4 Hercules flying boat on display at the Evergreen Aviation and Space Museum in McMinnville, Oregon. The press called it the "Spruce Goose" but Hughes disliked that name. Enjoy the video of this HUGE aircraft and be sure to look at how the aircraft on display around it look so small.

For the vintage aircraft fan YouTube is becoming a cool place to find content. Mikey McBryan and his crew wrapped up the saving of a D-Day veteran C-47/DC-3 this summer and are on to their next project. A Fokker Dr. 1 Triplane replica. The replica was involved in a landing accident so it needs a rebuild. Follow along as they resurrect the Triplane along with another additional project that was just added... a Foxmoth!

Remembering Pearl Harbor this weekend in 2019. I have been fortunate to see two of only a hand full of aircraft that survived the December 7th attack. A Grumman Duck and Ford Trimotor are two that are a part of the Mid America Flight Museum collection in East Texas. The video attached here highlights those two survivors.
