The Hughes H-4 Hercules was developed and built by the Hughes Aircraft Company as a prototype strategic airlift flying boat. It was planned to be a transatlantic flight transport to be used in the course of the Second World War, however, it was not completed promptly to be in service during the war. On November 2, 1947, the aircraft performed its first and only flight and there was only one prototype produced.
