Hughes H-1

by   24.6k Hyattorama  2 months ago

I've already posted this plane, but I decided that it was accurate enough to be called a replica. So I'm reposting it. Also, I've rescaled it (now 1:1 scale), added a callsign, and made a few other small changes.

The Hughes H-1 was a racing aircraft built by Hughes Aircraft in 1935. It broke the world landplane speed record, going 352.39 mph with Hughes at the controls. Promptly after breaking the record, Hughes ran out of fuel and crashed into a beet field. After the crash, Hughes is quoted as saying, "we can fix her, she'll go faster."

Flight controls are standard.
Ag8 for lights.

Happy flying! :)

    Well, she’s a hot ship! Definitely looks the part and easy enough to takeoff, fly and land if you keep the speed under control (I almost ran off the end of the runway landing because she does not want to slow down—just like the real thing!), nice!
