115 years ago, a Wright Brothers airplane made the first heavier than air flight. It lasted all of 12 seconds. In 1947, Howard Hughes flew the Hercules, nicknamed the Spruce Goose, a mile in Long Beach Harbor. It was the largest plane ever built. Photographs and other materials from before the Wrights to the Space Race after the Spruce Goose will form the foundation of a visit to Stephen White's collection, one of the largest private aviation and space collections anywhere in the world.
