Whatever the tiny amount you know of Howard Hughes, he was a legend and the world needs people like him.
This was an extraordinary privilege and something I will treasure.
As you walk in to the museum at eye level you see lots of planes and a reception desk where you buy the ticket to go in.
What isn't immediately obvious is that you are under the wing of the Hughes H4 Hercules
For $25 you could be part of a party of four and have your picture taken in his seat which took about 6 minutes.
For $50 the museum curator would take you for a one hour tour on your own of the plane. Mine lasted 90 minutes with all the technical questions I asked.
It was an honour and I have a new engineering hero.
