Description
Description given with photo: "Prepare to Move "Hercules" Wing, Culver City, Calif. -- One of the two 34-ton wing sections of Howard Hughes' eight-engined Hercules, world's largest flying boat, is put on house-moving dollies in Culver City, Calif., before beginning the 28-mile journey to Los Angeles Harbor, where the mammoth airplane will be assembled for its first test flight, supposedly around the first of the year. A two-day trip will see the wing- 19 feet high, 49 feet wide, 160 feet long - at the $200,000 graving dock at Terminal Island, Calif., which was built specifically for the assembly of the craft. Note comparative size of men working on the wind. Credit (ACME). 6-12-46."
