Seems like I saw something about this "Beluga" plane on discovery channel. What do you know about it Bill? Built to ferry airplane parts for the 'Airbus' maybe??? It's been several months ago that I saw the program and I just do not recall why this plane was modified like this.

we get boeing test flights here in colorado springs. I didnt get to see the Dreamlifter out here. We got to see the 777F that Air france just got delivery of the other day. hope we can get the Dreamlifter at an airshow soon. Great picture!!!

it was modified to carry pre fabricated fuselage section, wings(whole) most parts of a 787 so they can go to everett and be assembled faster. It was engineered by Boeing, and carries parts for Boeing 787. the Beluga is an Airbus product, and carries parts for Airbus aircraft, only.

This reminds me of way back in the '80s when the Space Shuttle/747 carrier combo visited Britain. I have an old print of that somewhere, I should scan it in and post it for everyones delectation...

These are great air show shots.

I got some crappy pics of the Blue Angels whan I passed by Brawley a few years back...

I look forward to that post!

I grew up a number of years in Corpus Christi, Texas - and at that time in the early 1960's they had the world's largest naval air station. I got to see the Blue Angels quite often - incredible talents and awesome machinery. The Thunderbirds (in this series) are the US Air Force equivalent.

The Blues were flying F-18s at that time.

My all time fave aerobatic team is the Flying Jokers from Norway, they used to fly F-5s and were very noisy!!!
