Howard Hughes is an american business icon. He was one of the wealthiest self-made businessmen in the world during his peak. He was also just a super interesting and intelligent dude. He formed Hughes Aircraft Company and designed multiple airplanes. Hughes was an aviation innovator whose legacy still has an impact to this day. He used his access to top of the line aviation technology to set multiple air speed records. He was a film maker who had a knack for making some of the more controversial films of the day like Hells Angels (1930) and Scarface (1932). The guy is a business legend and accomplished some pretty spectacular things. He was also one of the first people to have an executive plane, pretty much a flying office. This thing was absolute luxury in the skies. Every modern amenity you could think of at the time was built into the plane, which there were only 9 of in the world. After Howard Hughes death however, the plane was taken to a plane graveyard and was left to rot away with the countless other planes kept there. Until another creative guy got a hold of it in 1969. Wait till you see what the new owner did with this piece of history. This repurposed plane turned into a boat is absolutely crazy!
