Description
HUGHES' GIANT PLANE GETS FLAPS This 74-foot wing-flap for the world's largest airplane, built by Howard Hughes, is almost as long as the wing of a standard 21-passenger airliner. The flap, one of two which will be installed in the 320-foot wing of the giant flying boat, is en route from the Hughes Aircraft plant at Culver City, California, to Los Angeles Harbor where the plane is being assembled. Transcribed from the photo sleeve: " June 1946."
