 Turned out it was just doing a flyby before they put it in the museum.

more weight = more fuel needed. it may be able to carry the shuttle, but it will use alot of fuel and wont stay airbourne for long

I guess you live in America? If so, I rest my case.

Regardless of the stupidity of this post. Overweight costs are still bullshit

747s used to carry space shuttles are specially designed to carry space shuttles

In reading through the comments thus far, I'd like to add something others haven't noticed.

The space shuttle....wait for it,

HAS WINGS.

It's wings allow it to produce enough lift to allow it to glide through the atmosphere upon reentry, so one would assume it has enough lift to help the aircraft underneath it fly. I may not be an aerospace engineer, but for cruising, it wouldn't be burning that much more fuel to make a difference. My wager would be it burns more fuel at takeoff and landing.

Of course, if someone's more educated on this subject, please set me straight.

Well, the inside is entirely stripped of passengers and seats, which saves a lot of weight. Pic related, what the inside would probably look like.

It's about the total weight to fuel ratio, If you bring more weight than expected, they have to calculate the equation all over again and thus load more fuel.

At Ft.Campbell I was lucky enough to actually see this land and take a picture of it up close.

It was kinda cool I guess, same feeling you get at a museum i suppose.

This reminds me of something my sister told me once.
If an aeroplane is getting low on fuel in the middle of flight, another aeroplane will fly up and insert a tube into it's gas thingy, but it's very difficult to do. It's like... Plane porn.

You do know they stripped the interior of the plane, right?

not a 747 bro

it's mainly about the baggage handlers, a lot of them had been getting injuries from lifting huge bags.
User avatar #11 - haseotakaeda (04/23/2013) [-]
They take out most of the seats, utilities, lavatories and basically everything other than the cockpit and what the pilot/small crew would really need

Fat fuck faggot op
#5 - devout feminist (04/23/2013) [-]
the plane itself is probably empty and the shuttle can generate some lift itself provided with enough speed, its like an extra pair of wings for the 747.
User avatar #3 - churrundo (04/23/2013) [-]
well, the shuttle has wings so it helps a lot with sustentation
