Gotha and Film Production Crew and Cast
Image by Wisconsin Historical Images
A vintage German Gotha airplane brought to Hollywood by Howard Hughes for use in "Hell’s Angels," together with members of the Caddo Company’s film crew and several members of the cast in the plane. At the time the Gotha was the largest airplane to have appeared in a motion picture. In the film storyline, the plane was captured by two British aviators to bomb a German munitions dump, one of many dramatic and authentic scenes in "Hells Angels." See Image ID#28295 for another view of this plane.
