About This File

CFS2 Spruce Goose. The largest wooden airplane ever constructed, and flown only one time, the Spruce Goose represents one of humanity's greatest attempts to conquer the skies. It was born out of a need to move troops and material across the Atlantic Ocean, where in 1942, German submarines were sinking hundreds of Allied ships. Henry Kaiser, steel magnate and shipbuilder, conceived the idea of a massive flying transport and turned to Howard Hughes to design and build it. Hughes took on the task, made even more challenging by the government’s restrictions on materials critical to the war effort, such as steel and aluminum. Six times larger than any aircraft of its time, the Spruce Goose, also known as the Hughes Flying Boat, is made entirely of wood. A long time ago, I did a CFS2 conversion for an earlier Spruce Goose model by Dennis Simanaitis released in 2004. Unhappily, the converted plane goes too low at water and I never uploaded it, but it flies well. I stored it hoping someone could build a better plane. When Erwin Welker released his new work, I simply made a last revision at the airfile and prepare a good DP, based on the BV238, to get a tested product. By Peperez.
