The Evergreen Aviation & Space Museum displays military and civilian aircraft and spacecraft. The most notable aircraft is the Hughes H-4 Hercules "Spruce Goose," a flying boat with the largest wingspan of any aircraft ever built. The primary structure is the aviation center with the Spruce Goose as centerpiece. The space flight center holds a Titan II missile as its centerpiece, along with the SR-71 Blackbird. A smaller building has a seven-story IMAX theater. A radio control air flight field is located behind the aviation center, near a group of Soviet-built armored vehicles, including two T-34/85s, a T-55 and two armored personnel carriers. The museum is located in McMinnville, Oregon, across the street from the headquarters of Evergreen International Aviation.
