Boeing 747 Dreamlifter Development Presentation

Fri Nov 08, 2019 12:13 am

Interesting video at: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pPdh1iABqY4

Boeing test pilot Jerry Whites shares the saga of the development of the Dreamlifter, which is the cargo version of the Boeing 747-400. They converted one of the world's most successful airliners into a massive, versatile, high capacity cargo carrier.

Very interesting presentation, ends with a Q&A with a question on MAX with the kind of answer one would expect from a retired Boeing test pilot. :biggrin:
Wake up to find out that you are the eyes of the world
The heart has its beaches, its homeland and thoughts of its own
Wake now, discover that you are the song that the morning brings
The heart has its seasons, its evenings and songs of its own

Wow good recommendation. I thought I was the only one watching the Peninsula Senior's channel! They frequently have pilots on there - mostly ex-military from Southern California - sharing a variety of aviation lore and reminiscence. It's worth subscribing to their channel, but this was one of the better presentations I will say.

Yep, someone here pointed out their F-14 video and I've been watching the channel ever since.

I never realized how many large rivets were in the surface of the Dreamlifter, and that it was so important to Boeing and FAA that it fly just like a 744F.

YouTuber '74 Gear' ( https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCovVc- ... qwO3Sdzx7w ) is a Dreamlifter pilot. His content is a lot different but some times pretty interesting.

Great post, thanks for sharing that one. We sometime forget what with all the "Boeing news" these days just what talented group of individuals make up this company.
