Howard Hughes And Crew Signed Photo

Write a Review


Howard Hughes, 1905-1976, Businessman, pilot, movie director, one of the most financially successful - and eccentrically genius - men in the world and the aviation industry. He formed Hughes Aircraft in 1932 and spent the next years setting world air speed records. His flying creations included the H-1 Racer, the H-4 Hercules, famously nicknamed “The Spruce Goose”, but it did fly!  Howard Hughes was included in Flying Magazine’s list of the 51 Heroes of Aviation. In 1938, Hughes set a triumph of aviation technology by completing a flight around the world in 91 hours in a Lockheed 14 Super Electra with a four-man crew, for which he received numerous awards including the Congressional Gold Medal. This unique piece is a portion of a signing-in document for the men who flew around the world in 1938: Howard Hughes, Pilot, Harry Connor, co-pilot, Thomas Thurlow, navigator, Edward Lund, flight engineer, and Richard Stoddard, radio operator. An extraordinary piece of certified aviation history, the presentation includes a large image of Howard Hughes, photos of the crew and of their plane for this daring venture and also actual pieces from Hughes' plane the Spruce Goose.
