Flying Oregon

On yet another US trip I was able to finally visit the Evergreen Aviation Museum at McMinnville, Oregon, home of Howard Hughes' Spruce Goose. This is highly recommended - a purpose built building stuffed full of interesting aircraft, and right in the centre that largest plane in the world. Afterwards I was treated to a lovely flight around the northern part of Oregon by Thomas Lindner of the Oregon State Flying Club.
