This is more than the story of the world´s largest airplane. It is the story of Hughes the aviator and designer of unusual airplanes during a fascinating era in aviation history.
It is the story of his life before he became the wheeler-dealer of Las Vegas, of the airplane crashes that changed the course of his life, of his mysterious "disappearance" for nine months, and of his struggle to vindicate himself and his works during the Senate investigation of his wartime contracts.
In addition to the first-hand reminicenses of many who knew and worked for H. Hughes, this book is based on previously unpublished documentary material.
