I stayed on the QM a few years ago. It is absolutely gorgeous inside. The cabins are kinda small but very cool. I love the art deco throughout the vessel. If memory serves, there is a "haunted" area. It is in Long Beach, CA.

Way back when I was living in SoCal in the 70's, my neighbor was head of the wood shop that was doing the restoration on her. He took me on a couple guided tours of what he was working on. Bet it looks better now.

The Spruce Goose is at the Evergreen Museum in McMinnville, OR.
just south of Portland.
Have you seen it? I'd sure like to.

Twice, and will go again, saw it when it was next to QM in LB, McMinnville has it displayed way better, and for an additional $55 you can take the guided tour on the flight deck.
$55 just for the flight deck?!? How much for the whole damn thing?

I have to get on that flight deck. I did not realize it and QM were separated now.

They have it set up so you can go into the cargo deck, but there is a plexiglass wall separating the FD and the upper deck where you can see into the wings and the engines with a docent explaining it all.
I may splurge next time just to satisfy curiosity.

Be worth it just to sit where Hughes sat the day she flew!

Move forward to 6:51 to watch the lift take over as she rotates the day Howard pushed her into the air!

The color footage of Mr. Hughes pushing her to lift!
