Here is one of the largest airplanes ever built and one of the most secret. Here we have Howard Hughes' Spruce Goose and the SR-71 Blackbird.

When the Walt Disney Corporation decided they didn't want the Spruce Goose in Long Beach, California any more (it was right next to the Queen mary), Evergreen Aviation in McMinnville, Oregon purchased it, partially disassembled it and shipped it up to Oregon. It sat in pieces for a couple years until they could build a building big enough to hold it.

With the Goose as the centerpiece and main attraction, the building is now filled with vintage aircraft and they are building a second, smaller building next to the first to display more planes.

That's a nice comparison Cal, but they should put a Cessna 150 next to the Blcakbird to take it even further!
