RESOURCES


XF-11

A unique, sleek and powerful aircraft with an incredible story. That's the XF-11. Built by Hughes Aircraft Company between 1943 and 1946, this very first prototype flew only once and landed exactly zero times. It crashed on its maiden flight, piloted by Howard Hughes himself, who survived the crash and flew the modified Mark II a year later with better success.

I have been scraping old drawings, schematics and low-quality photos for months to try and recreate with the greatest fidelity this iconic XF-11 Mark I in all its glory.

For the bravest among you, there will be some random failures that could trigger and make your life much more complicated!
