The Spruce Goose.

Until the day Hughes died, he dreamed of flying his big wooden boat again. The plane is 218 feet long and 79 feet high. It has a wing span of 320 feet — 196 feet wider than the 747. It weighs 300,000 pounds.

The Spruce Goose, the giant flying boat Howard Hughes flew only once - and on which he spent $60 million over 30 years to keep ready to fly at any moment.
