Aero Club Hands Spruce Goose Title to Evergreen Aviation Museum

evergreen title ceremony

On November 7, five days after the 68th anniversary of the only flight of the Hughes Flying Boat, the Aero Club of Southern California handed over title to the Spruce Goose to the Evergreen Aviation Museum which bought the aircraft after it was evicted from its dome alongside the Queen Mary.

The ceremony capped the final chapter of the long-running dispute over the remaining balance of monies owed the Club under the agreements of sale originally signed in 1992.

First Vice President Nissen Davis, General Counsel Bob Lyon, and treasurer Art McAllister were on hand to represent the Aero Club.
