The rear tail assembly of the 747LCF is hinged and swings to the side. Then specially designed multi-segmented "crawlers" deliver and extract the 787 fuselage barrels into the frame. There is no front or side-load capability as they are not necessary

Does anybody know how the flight control cables are routed to the tail ? While we're on it, how about the APU duct and shrouded fuel line.
|Quoting SP90 (Reply 16):|
Isn't there suppose to be a fuel tank in the vertical stabilizer on normal 744s? Maybe it is use on the LCF as well, dedicated supply for the APU. I would be interesting to see how the duct for the bleed air and control cables are routed though.
