Hi there, I was wondering if any of the cargo handlers out there would be able to help me with the weights of the LD-1 containers as used on the 747, and also the approximate fuselage stations of the forward and aft cargo pits, along with approx floor area and weight limits.
It is interesting to note that F1 and A1 have only 2 pallet positions and it is very easy to max out those compartments with heavy pallets. You can never load two max weight pallets in either of those compartments.
If you know what's really going on then you'll know what to do
