History: Spruce Goose, Hughes H-4 Hercules

History: Spruce Goose, Hughes H-4 Hercules

The 1987 animated feature Yogi Bear and the Magical Flight of the Spruce Goose features the Hercules prominently. In the 1991 adventure film The Rocketeer, hero Cliff Secord uses a large-scale model of the Hercules to escape some eager federal agents and Howard Hughes himself. After Secord glides the model to safety, Hughes expresses relief that the craft might actually fly.
The Spruce Goose also played a minor role in the 2000 fictional flight simulator Crimson Skies (video game) by Microsoft. The construction and flight of the Hercules was featured in the Hughes 2004 biopic The Aviator. Motion control and remote control models, as well as partial interiors and exteriors of the aircraft, were reproduced for this scene. The motion-control Hercules used for the film is on display at the Evergreen Aviation Museum, next to the real Hercules.
In the videogame, L.A. Noire (2011), the player is able to enter the aircraft. Additionally, exterior and interior views of the H-4 Hercules aircraft are featured in the opening introduction of the DLC mission, "Nicholson Electroplating".
