Airliner Cross Sections

Sun Nov 26, 2006 3:54 pm

Does anyone know where to obtain cross section measurements of airliners? While fuselage diameters are frequently published (including the A.NET database), I have had no luck finding the actual vertical dimensions (meaning belly to roof). As most know, a/c are not perfect circles and are usually taller than they are wider. Any ideas?

Boeing states the 787 cross section on their website Boeing.com

In fact if you dig around boeing.com you will find an immense amount of dimensional detail on Boeing airliners, past & present(and future)
If your camera sends text messages, that could explain why your photos are rubbish!

The 777 was Boeing's first true-circular fuselage cross section. All of the others were some variation of the "double-bubble" and/or oval in shape.

Thanks folks, but I must be stupid...I have always found the Boeing web site difficult to navigate through. As I have mentioned, I have found fuselage widths, but have not been successful in finding true fuselage heights. Is there a link to this information one of you can send me? Thank you...

I suspect Boeing doesn't show fuselage heights.

The data you want can be found in Boeing's airport planning documents:

http://www.boeing.com/commercial/airports/plan_manuals.html

Select the model you want, then choose Airplane Description. These files include exterior and interior dimensions.

Sure nuff, the exterior fuselage heights are there on the three-views.

B2707SST...Thank you...I did not think to look at the airport ground images. I guess Boeing wants us to "work" for the information. Now, how about Airbus equipment? Where can one find this info?

Is the T7 200LR/300ER also the first Boeing to offer restrooms "downstairs" in the cargo deck? Looking through those files I didn't notice any other Boeing offering them as an option.
