For those that haven’t seen The Aviator (2004 Leonardo DiCaprio), Howard Robard Hughes, Jr. was an American business man, aviator, engineer, film producer, film director, and very rich person. He set several world air-speed records, built the then largest aircraft to only just fly (the Spruce Goose) and owned ( and bankrupted) Trans World Airlines (TWA). As he got older he became more and more of a recluse and wasn’t seen in public for many years. He stayed at the Inn on the Park in London until December 1974.
He died on April 5th 1976 appropriately enough during a flight.
