Which is the biggest 747 I see some that are very short and some that are just monsters.

Also, is a DC-10 bigger than a 777?

Thanks

The Boeing 777-200 /-300 is the largest and longest ever twin-engine aircraft and is bigger than a DC-10.

There are five models of the 747, 747-SP, 747-100, 747-200, 747-300 and the 747-400 which is the biggest one.

Boeing is planning to make a larger Boeing 747 that could carry more passenger and make another new model that will have longer range to compete with the Airbus A340-500 which is the longest-range aircraft.

The largest 747 (by maximum takeoff weight) is the 747-400, and no, a DC-10 is not larger than a 777. If you want any weight numbers, dimensions, or other info on comparisons, just ask!

I didn't know a DC-10 is bigger than a 777-200 /-300. Is the MD-11 bigger than it too ? Thanks.

After a quick visit to the Boeing site, I got these numbers. The DC-10 is NOT larger than the 777 in any important size category. The 777 is longer, heavier, has more room for passengers, more underfloor cargo space, and way more range.

The B747-400 is the largest commercial airliner (passengers + cargo), the B777-300 is the longest commercial airliner (length) and the An225 is the largest & biggest jet of them all.

Later, Boeing727

747s come in two different sizes generally. The 747-sp and the 747 classic (100-400) .
There is no difference in height or length between the 747-100/200 and the 747-300/400. the main dimesional difference is the wingspan and the cabin, since the 300 and 400 have a longer upper deck. The other dimesional differences between the 747-100/200/300/400 are their gross weights and range. The 747-400 is the most unique, and differs the most in terms of technology, featuring a glass cockpit and lighter building materials, such as fibres and alloys. The 777-200 and 300s are larger than a DC-10, but the 777-200 is lighter and burns about 30% less fuel. The 777 replaces the DC-10 even better than its magnificent sister, the MD-11.

A REAL QUICK WAY TO DIFFERENCIATE THE 747'S.

747-SP: THE SHORTEST ONE OF THEM ALL. YOU DON'T SEE IT VERY FREQUENTLY.

747-100: ONLY HAS 3 WINDOWS ON THE SECOND FLOOR.

747-200: HAS MORE THAN 3 WINDOWS ON THE SECOND FLOOR, BUT NO DOORS UP THERE.

747-300: HAS 17 WINDOWS AND A DOOR IN THE MIDDLE OF THOSE WINDOWS ON THE SECOND FLOOR.

747-400: THE ONLY ONE THAT HAS THE WINGLETS, ON THE TIP OF THE WINGS.
THE LARGEST ONE OF ALL.

The not all 747-100s have three windows up there. In fact, most airlines that operate the 747-100 have a full row of windows and seats upstairs. The conversion was availible from boeing or the airline. BA 747 100s have a full row, and so do Saudia, Air France, JAL and Virgin. The 747-200s have a door on the right side upper deck.

The biggest Boeing 747 aircraft is the Boeing 747-400 model .. if u see a Boeing 747-440 or something like that its just add-ons to the aircraft such as.. 747-32X or I dunno whatever they call it.. but it would just mean the aircraft would have an update.. and the smallest Boeing 747 is the Boeing 747Sp it was developed by Nasa for very long and tight routes..
The 777 I think it is larger than the Dc-10 but yet im not sure.. but the 777 is the largest 2 engine aircraft in the world.. Hope this answered ur question!

In terms of weight, I believe the -300 out did the 400, despite the fact they share a fuselage. An interesting note is that you can't always distinguish a -400 from a -300 by searching for winglets; one variant of the -400 doesn't have any. The only sure fire way that I'm aware of is to look at the engines (Hard to explain the difference between the -300 and -400's engines, but if you were to see, it's obvious).

The 747-400 is the largest commercial airliner. It is the biggest kind of 747 and it is still considered to be the largest commercial airplane in the world. The 777-300 is a little bit longer, but is not as big. The 747-400 is more roomy, carrys more, and flys faster. The 777-200 is bigger than the DC-10, I saw then side by side and you could tell a difference.
