Answer:  BOARD THE PLANE

( . . . and even fly the plane . . . for about one mile, at an altitude of about 70 feet.  Then she was never flown again!  To date, the H-4 Hercules – aka “The Spruce Goose” – still can boast the largest wingspan of any airplane ever built, at 97.5 meters!  That’s 106.6 yards, or almost 320 feet!  They’ve compared it to the VVS/Starfleet Gagarin-class exploration cruiser, which you can Google, but it’s not real.  It’s a silly “Star Trek” science fiction vessel, but it’s written up almost as if it’s real.  Dumb nerds!
