I want to see the renderings already.
Whether you love or hate Airbus, you must admit that the Beluga is one of the most iconic airframes in the world. Like Purdue13 said, I'd love to see the renderings. I'm imagining a 380 fuselage spliced on top of a 330, and with their production rate increasing, I could easily see 9-10 new aircraft made.
Love and hate are really the only options you can imagine by these days ? Like or dislike should be more peaceful. Most of us are not fanatics (despite what I can read on this site sometimes...).
There might be a market for a few more. I tracked one of the Dreamlifters from KSDF - KMHR a week or so before Christmas with a UPS flight number.
wow really? thats pretty interesting. I knew UPS contracted other aircraft over the holidays but I didn't think they would go that big haha
Are you referring to the Boeing Dreamlifters?
yes, I believe there are a total of 4. I am under the approach to KMHR 22L and they come over about 3000' agl. I heard it come over and it wasn't the run-of-the mill freighter. I missed capturing a screenshot from dump1090 showing it, but it did show on FA and Planeplotter. Too dark to see anyway.
