A rare grouping of three original 11" x 14 photographs showing the famed Spruce Goose and the Honolulu Clipper.

On November 2nd 1947 in Long Beach, California this massive plane was Scheduled only for engine and water handling tests, Howard Hughes surprises the world by flying for over a mile, the giant craft known by then as the Spruce Goose never flew again.

The Spruce Goose was intended to carry up to 750 fully equipped troops, or two Sherman class tanks . Hughes and his team had broken ground in the development of this plane, that they did it in wood is even more remarkable. Though the project finished behind schedule....they were ahead of their time!

The Honolulu Clipper is shown from we believe to be a taxi test with test Pilot Eddie Allen on Elliott Bay, Seattle, Washington.

These are exceptional and important photographs of aviation history.
