Hi fellow wiki editors!

To help newly registered users get more familiar with the wiki (and maybe older users too) there is now a {{Welcome to the wiki}} template. Have a look at it and feel free to add it to new users discussion pages (and perhaps your own).

I have tried to keep the template short, but meaningful. /Johan G

The H-1 Racer made by Hughes aircraft, was a record setting piston engine experimental aircraft.

The original racer set records in the 1930s with Howard Hughes at the controls at its first flight in 1935. A reproduction was completed in 2002, but crashed the next year (2003). The FlightGear H-1 is a 1937 version of the aircraft.

The original Hughes H-1 survives and is on display at the National Air and Space Museum.
