Travel through history via the library's big-screen viewing of “Howard Hughes and the Spruce Goose." In 1947 the man who found fame in the film industry collaborated with industrialist Henry J. Kaiser to build, and then successfully pilot, a massive flying machine called the H-4 Hercules, better known as the "Spruce Goose." Commissioned by the American government during WWII, this "flying boat" was designed to transport U.S. soldiers and tanks across the Atlantic Ocean. Experience the first and only flight of this 400,000-pound bird. Register by phone or online.
