Passenger 747´s Interior Ceeling?

Mon Jun 30, 2008 7:11 am

The metal that is holding the overhead compartements and cabin ceeling, is it in any way neccessary for the main aircraft construction? Can it be removed without damaging the strenght of the body? When passenger planes transform into cargo planes, is these metalconstructions removed??

Regards

It's not the 747, it's the MD11F cargo bay:

But as you can see: basically everything has been removed from inside...

Yeah, it's fine to remove. It's not structural metal. In fact, there's not very much metal there at all, to begin with. Just enough to frame the panels and support the overhead bins.

The Interior decorative panels supports are not critical to the Aircraft structural loads,but rather brackets that hold the panels in place.
