FS2004 – Hughes H4 Spruce Goose

Spruce Goose_FS9 Airliner

FS2004 – Hughes H4 Spruce Goose. The flying boat Hughes H4 “Spruce Goose” with three repainted texture sets. In fact the H4 was a flying ship with a wingspan of almost 98 m; until now the biggest wingspan ever built. The maximum weigth was designed for 181.5 tons. The famous flight pioneer Howard Hughes proposed that giant to be used as WWII troop transporter for 750 soldiers and a crew of 18 men; safe from U-boat attacks. The complete aircraft was made of birch and spruce wood. The construction was finished too late and so this huge airplane made only one test flight at low level. This FS2004 model is now reworked and provides three texture sets, new gauges and additional internal views. One repaint represent the white prototype, flown by Howard Huges, and the others are fictional “what if…” paint schemes, assuming a troop transporter in the colors of the American Forces or as intercontinental airliner in colors of the PA. The original FS2004 model is made by Dennis Simanaitis. Upgrade and repaints by Erwin Welker.
