Made me think also of Howard Hughes' plane---which flew once....The Spruce Goose. Made entirely of plywood.

Paul did manage to get it throuh the doors.

The comparison with the Spruce Goose is a bit inappropriate. The latter made only one short flight, whereas the Do. X, built more than a decade later, actually went inro service, making the first crossing of the South Atlantic by an airliner. It ended its days in an air museum that was destroyed by RAF Bomber Command during WW2.
