A Special Model for Howard Hughes
A special model SB-307B for Howard Hughes was built with more powerful engines and extra fuel tanks for an around-the-world flight that was cancelled due to the start of World War II. The flight was never made. It was the first Stratoliner delivered to a customer; its initial flight (with experimental license NX19904) occurred on July 13, 1939. Postwar it was fitted with a luxury interior, including a bedroom, and named The Flying Penthouse.
A 1964 hurricane severely damaged it and rendered it unflyable. In 1969 it was purchased as scrap for $61.99 -- the fuselage was salvaged (the aft rounded pressure bulkhead formed the cabin after end), then mounted on a boat hull and converted into a luxury yacht named The Londonaire. It was rebuilt beginning in 1994, and is a Florida based, operating yacht named Cosmic Muffin, with N19904 painted on its sides.

They're not my pictures. I found them on the internet. This is the museum:

http://www.aviationmuseum.eu/World/E...cke_Muzeum.htm

The airplane looked Eastern European, and it looked like it was in a museum, so I started searching for pictures of planes in those museums and found pictures taken by tourists.
