I've seen this guy down here at MIA a few times.
What do they normally haul in this sucker?
Rocket or plane parts? UFO's? LOL

787 parts for Boeing. From manufacturers to assembly lines.

The Super Guppy was a similar idea used to transport rocket parts. Airbus has the Beluga for the same sort of over-sized cargo flights.

There have been only four sold and the parts that are used in final production of the Dreamliner 787 are transported by this plane.

Is this the plane that landed on the wrong runway and where worried they wouldn't have enough runway to take off again?

You can track them on FlightRadar24 and camp out at the end of Paine field, Everett (if you happen to be up here) where their usually headed. You can see them fly a few hundred feet over your head as the come in to land. Very cool.

You've obviously never seen the Guppy, or the Airbus that does the same thing.

I used to work next to the airfield in North Wales which the Beluga operated from. There is a road right at the end of the runway, I swear if you stood on the roof of your car you could grab onto the aircraft, awesome plane and fantastic to see it banking after take off. You would swear its going so slow it would just fall straight down. Tremendous thrust from those engines

I seen this guy a couple a weeks ago on a weekend fly over. Caught my eye because of the contrail and noise was quite different, so I looked it up real quick on flightradar to see it was this whale. At that time I can't remember origin but destination I remember being Alaska.

She stops in Anchorage quite often on her way to and from Japan bringing fuselage or wing components back for final assembly.
