In 1946, the Hughes H-4 Hercules was moved from Culver City, Ca. to the Port of Long Beach. This was a 28 mile trek to haul the 75 ton fuselage, the wings were hauled separately. The trip took 2 days and was hauled by a single vehicle. What was the name of the vehicle that hauled the plane to it's destination? Why did they haul it to Long Beach? What was the nickname for this flying boat? What engine powered this truck andf how many H.P.?

This was a fun read, I might be able to find the entire article and post a link. Shouldn't be too hard, I gave away a lot of info.
