Hughes H-4 Hercules <em>Spruce Goose</em> at Evergreen Aviation & Space Museum

The Spruce Goose has been featured (at least conceptually) in live-action and animated films.  The scale model shown below was one of several built for the 2004 film The Aviator.

Of course the Spruce Goose is the main draw, but there are lots of other aircraft to see, from the early days of flight to modern jets.  And a second building the same size featuring space flight and even more aircraft that couldn’t fit in the first building.
