First, I just wanted to say hi to everyone as I am a new member of the forums.
Secondly, I just wanted to know if anyone knew where I could find some of the concepts that boeing developed when designing the 747. I remember watching something about it on the Discovery Channel when they were dedicating the show on the development of the Airbus A380. I heard that the 747 was initially developed as a Cargo Carrier and that the hump was created because many companies wanted the abilitity of unloading cargo from the nose of the aircraft. In order to achieve that, they had to raise the flight deck thus creating the infamous hump that we all know and love about the 747. Any information would be greatly appreciated.
