Re: Spinal Tap (inspired) Airways
The Goose could have done better than a 70-foot, 1-mile flight but was not allowed to. It was not supposed to fly at all the one time it did, it was only out for taxiing tests. Hughes lifted off for a short flight anyway. The Goose might have flown nicely, but we'll never know because they canceled the flight test program. The war was long over and the Goose design was no longer needed.
