Howard Hughes Spruce Goose Demo Flight Northern CA Regional Float Fly June 14 2008
Climb aboard and fly co-pilot as Howard Hughes demonstrates the airworthiness of his Spruce Goose in front of a crowd of spectators Saturday noon at the Northern California Regional Float Fly.
This is a beautiful event with great camping on the shady, cool waters of Lake Red Bluff. Get a nice look at the area from the onboard video and see if you can make out Howard's image in the cockpit reflections

I've only just recovered from that scary on-board video from your maiden flight, back at the little pond with the plane-eating trees all around.
This one looks absolutely manageable, gentle and true. Some fairly tight turns though. And was that a landing? I didn't notice it.
As they say, being born is the most dangerous thing we ever do. After that it's plain sailing.
Just what you want. Terrific!
