Largest One (1) Propeller Airplane

All:

Identify the largest airplane ever to fly using only one (1) propeller.

Note: It was a production series aircraft.

Caveat: Word "Largest" defined as: "Greatest Wing Span and combined heaviest Wing Loading."

That's relatively large; however, the one we're looking for had a wingspan of over 130-ft and a prop diameter of over 20-ft.

Thanks for your input...

Best, John

Could be this guy, but I don't know about the wing loading.

You're both correct on the bird and correct on the wing loading comment. Did you know that it hd 4-engines?

Best, John
