Unlike the Spruce Goose (its inspiration), which was made out of wood, the Paper Pelican was made out of paper mache, with help from Isabella, the Fireside Girls, Baljeet and Buford. The Paper Pelican's wingspan was 320 feet ( 98 meters), 1 inch (0.5 meters) larger than the Spruce Goose's wingspan, 319' 11" (97.5 meters). ("De Plane! De Plane!")
Paper Pelican AirlinesEdit
Both the Paper Pelican and the Spruce Goose flew for a single flight. While the latter's flight was part of a test run, the Paper Pelican's flight was complete with airline service and crew.
Flight crew Edit
- Phineas Flynn - Pilot,
- Ferb Fletcher - Co-pilot and the singer of the song called "Big Ginormous Airplane"
- Isabella Garcia-Shapiro - Flight Attendant
- Fireside Girls - Flight Attendants
- Baljeet - Flight Attendant
Termination of service Edit
The airline service ended with a water landing that caused the plane to dissolve, owing to its Papier-mâché construction. The chairs remained intact, allowing all passengers to drift to the shore and disembark.
