The Hughes H-1 is a racing aircraft built by Hughes Aircraft in 1935. It set a world airspeed record and a transcontinental speed record across the United States. The H-1 Racer was the last aircraft built by a private individual to set the world speed record; most aircraft to hold the honor since have been military designs. Design and development During his work on his movie *** s Angels, Howard Hughes employed Glenn Odekirk to maintain the fleet of over 100 aircraft used in the production. The two men shared a common interest in aviation and hatched a plan to build a record-beating aircraft. The aircraft was given many names, but is commonly known as the H-1. It was the first aircraft model produced by the Hughes Aircraft company. Design studies began in 1934 with an exacting, large scale model (over two feet in length) that was tested in the California Institute of Technology wind tunnel, revealing a speed potential of 365 mph. Technical details Streamlining was a paramount design criterion resulting i ...
I wonder if Howard Hughes really burned every article of clothing he owned that Katherine Hepburn touched after she dumped him.
Interesting thing. I was just reading an article about the Texas politician, Randy Weber, that compared President Obama to Hitler, saying that even Hitler went to France (referring to the recent solidarity march in Paris). It got me thinking about Texas and all the weird characters that come from there. Howard Hughes, Rick Perry, Gary Busey, George and Jeb Bush, and others. I just googled famous people that came from Texas hoping to find a balanced mix of nobility and nut cases. I was less than surprised to find that the nut cases far outnumber the nobles. However, some of the notable nobles are Willie Nelson, Ann Richards, Lyndon Johnson, Michael Nesmith, maybe Joan Crawford, Owen Wilson. Texas, generally seems like a place full of regressives. I think it would be great if they seceded from the union. It would be another foreign country close enough to L.A. to visit within less than a full day's driving distance.

OK. History report. July 11th, 1946 / Culver City ~ Howard Hughes takes off in the XF-11 photographic plane for its maiden flight. Soon after the first photo was taken, Hughes’ landing gear jammed and he attempted to land at the L.A. Country Club golf course, but missed and crashed ~ smashing into Beverly Hills homes. Hughes was seriously hurt. One residence was demolished in the resultant blaze. A corner was chipped from the other house ~ a masterpiece designed by architect Wallace Neff. (805 N. Linden Dr.), and trees were flattened. Parts of the plane were scattered between the two damaged houses. The Los Angeles Conservancy reported in late 2013 that the 6,246 square-foot remaining house (color pictures) had been slated for demolition by its new owners. The Beverly Hills Cultural Heritage Commission began drawing up paperwork in October to have it designated as a local landmark soon after. The good news is the Wallace Neff home at 805 N. Linden Dr. is no longer in danger of being demolished thanks to ...

How to Become a Self Made Billionaire in 10 Years or Less 1. Start with a dream “I intend to be, the richest man in the world.” – Howard Hughes “It does not take money to make money.” – Robert Kiyosaki Becoming a billionaire begins with a dream. One of the free gifts given to us by our creator is the gift of imagination. It costs nothing to dream. Yet, most people don’t dare to dream and those who do, dream small. “People who dream small dreams continue to live as small people.” – Rich Dad “Aim for the highest.” – Andrew Carnegie On several occasions, I have shared my dream with friends and all I got were fingers pointing at me saying; “you must be a joker.” Do statements like that deter me? My answer is no. I still continue to dream big and pursue that dream vigorously. If becoming a billionaire is your lifetime goal; then allow your mind to wander; dream big and shut your ears to critics. “I always knew I was going to be rich. I don’t think I ever doubted it for a minut ...

On this date: In 1783, Gen. George Washington issued his Farewell Orders to the Armies of the United States near Princeton, New Jersey. In 1795, the 11th president of the United States, James Knox Polk, was born in Mecklenburg County, North Carolina.
