Product Description

The Hughes H1 is a racing aircraft built in 1935. Shortly after its first flight, this racer plane broke the world speed record for landplanes. Clocking in at 352.39 mph, the H-1 plane consequently ran out of fuel and crash-landed without sustaining any serious damage to the aircraft or to its pilot, Howard Hughes. The aircraft also had the distinction of being the last airplane built by a private individual to hold a world speed record. With the fastest aircraft title under its belt, the H-1 racer was then positioned as a military aircraft. Hughes tried to sell the idea to the United States Army Air Corps (USAAC), but it was received with a lukewarm welcome. Hughes’ ventured that the Army rejected his proposal as the cantilever monoplane was deemed inappropriate for a pursuit vessel. However, historians speculated that more modern radial engine fighters were based on the design of the H-1 racer.
