Howard Hughes Stepping Onto Personal Plane

Howard Hughes Stepping Onto Personal Plane
Howard Hughes built one of the most important aviation manufacturing companies in history and was a major player in the growth and fortunes of Trans World Airlines. Through most of his life, Hughes was involved in aviation in one capacity or another but, of his many interests, flying was his greatest passion.

Hughes was born in Houston, Texas, in December 1905, to a wealthy family. Orphaned at 17, he dropped out of school to take control of the family business–the Hughes Tool Company, which had made a fortune thanks to a patent it held for a special oil-drilling bit. Although Hughes maintained control of the company, he quickly set out for Los Angeles to pursue two main goals–to become a famous movie producer and the world’s best pilot.

Hughes combined certain aspects of his two dreams when he produced and directed the movie Hell’s Angels (1930), a romantic vision of World War I aviators. The film took three years to make, cost $3.8 million to produce, and killed three pilots in the process. It also received an Academy Award nomination for Best Cinematography. During filming, Hughes had obtained his pilots license. As he continued to produce and direct films in the early 1930s, he also became quite an accomplished pilot.

To support his aviation ventures, Hughes created the Hughes Aircraft Company in Glendale, California in 1932. The company consisted initially of Hughes’s own small team of designers and mechanics. Their mission was to build him the best racing planes in the world. The first aircraft they worked on and remodeled was an Army Air Corps pursuit plane. Hughes captured his first aviation prize in it at the All-American Air Meet in Miami, Florida, on January 14, 1934, while averaged 185 miles per hour (298 kilometers per hour) over a 20-mile (32-kilometer) racecourse.

Soon after, Hughes Aircraft built its first internally designed airplane–the H-1 racer. The H-1 was designed for speed, pure and simple; it was streamlining at its very best. On September 13, 1935, Hughes piloted the H-1 to a new speed record of 352 miles per hour (566 kilometers per hour) at Martin Field, near Santa Ana, California. The previous record was 314 miles per hour (515 kilometers per hour). Although Hughes had already achieved the record after a few passes over the airfield, he kept pushing, and the H-1 ran out of gas. Forced to make an emergency landing in a nearby beet field, Hughes walked away from the plane unharmed.

School zone sign on Hillcroft near the intersection with Willowbend, in Houston, TX. I didn’t think anything of these signs until I lived in New Orleans, and noticed that they still had the old-fashioned type listing the times. (I also thought that everyone had automated garbage pickup with those special plastic containers until I lived in New Orleans.) Not saying one way is better than the other, either with the signs or the garbage pickup, but just that it’s the little things that stick out.
I’ve also noticed that some places have these florescent green "x-ing" signs instead of yellow-orange ones.
I wonder, are there actually psychologists out there who study response times for these types of variations, or is it just that some urban planner or whatever picks out the latest nifty thing from the street signs catelog?? (Please post if you’re in the know.)
