The Cosmic Muffin, a boat recycled from Howard Hughes Boeing B-307, joined the unique collection of memorabilia at Aerospace Discovery at the Florida Air Museum this morning. The plane-boat was purchased in 1981 by Dave Drimmer, and he lived in the boat until 2000. The plane now rests with Howard Hughes’ Personal Aviation Collection, another facet of Aerospace Discovery at the Florida Air Museum. Drimmer donated the plane-boat to Aerospace Discovery at the Florida Air Museum and knows his piece of history will be well taken care of in Lakeland, Fl.
A special story on the history behind the plane, including an interview with Dave Drimmer will be coming out later this month. Until then, please enjoy the pictures from instillation this morning.
