Wingspan Greater Than Fuselage.

Thu Jul 26, 2001 12:51 am

About 5 months ago I posted this same topic about any aircraft whose wings are longer than its fuselage.
So, at the risk of deletion...I made this list. What I like to hear from anyone if I left any aircrafts out. All types & models are welcome. Any corrections are appreciated also.
A318, A319, A330-200, A340-200, A380.
737-600/700, 747SP, 767-200.
Thanks & regards.

Sorry, not the 767-200. The fuselage is slightly longer than the span. (48ft to about 47 feet). Most turboprops and practically all piston-engined planes have longer wingspans, apparently to balance the weight of the engine nacelles and to space the propellers from fuselage and each other. Newer stretched turboprops actually have longer fuselages though (ATR 72, Dash 8 Q400).

IL96-300 has longer wings too, as do An 124-100 and An 225.

Hop to it, fly for life!

The C-130/L-100, 44m vs. 40m, if I remember correctly, on the regular (not the extended fuselage) version.
