You mispelt,

"Looks like the Beluga!"



Firings, if well done, are good for employee morale.

Hardly look like the A380 more like the Airbus Beluga.
Sure Boeing did a mistake overseeing the super-size cargo planes, which are
dominated by Antonov 124/225 and Airbus Beluga.
Sure NASA could be a customer for this plane and other potential customer exist in North America.

Just a question, does it have a swing tail?. The nose is a standard 744 but the body is much tailer. If the load is that big how does it get in if its LONG.

Wow that's cool. Can't wait to see pics of it on airliners.net in a few years. Maybe I will drive up to Paine Field and do some spotting  Wink/being sarcastic . Nice to see that there are still ideas rolling around the 7E7. It will be a relief once the project is confirmed and we start seeing some of this become reality.

Why doesnt Boeing contract with the Air Force and use a C-5 to haul parts around?

Just saw on TV it holds 26 MILLION ping pong balls......lol, talk about your ultimate ping-pong tournament!

Hmmm....interesting.

I think this aircraft has potential if it goes public like the Beluga.
