Nasa Super Guppy Cargo plane makes a rare public appearance delivering the crew compartment of Nasa's
Full Fuselage Shuttle Trainer to the Museum of Flight in Seattle





Inside the turboprop plane was the crew compartment of NASA's Full Fuselage Shuttle Trainer





The delivery of the 28-foot crew compartment is the first of three trips NASA’s Super Guppy cargo plane is scheduled to make on the project. Two more flights will bring sections of the trainer’s 61-foot cargo bay.




A truelly strange looking plane

Oh come on with a plane like that you would have to paint a big smile and eyes on the front, it would look soooo cute

I remember seeing these regularly many years ago on the European flights transporting Airbus assemblies. I love it's European replacement, the Beluga... aptly named I think.

The sad part is that only one on that page is a real plane. Great photoshops though.

It's not quite the same as the real thing, but this one is the real one....





It is the one that says "Dreamliner Express" on the tail on that page. It's a photoshop of a 747-400, but it's based on a real plane, known as the Dreamlifter. It was built to haul fuselage sections and large parts of the 787 to final assembly from overseas.

Here's some more on the Dreamlifter. It's a pretty neat aircraft.

I love this pic.
