I've seen a cutaway of the wing on a "standard" 747-400, and it is fairly packed between the three fuel tanks mounted (3 per wing, totaling in six), the hydraulics, the electrics for leading edge heat, control circuits for the engines, etc, but there are still gaps. And, while you are right about it being a danger to store an IR flare dispenser so close to critical systems (chaff wouldn't matter that much, since it's just shredded aluminum strips), You also have to remember that it is a modified airframe, and that in a millitary aircraft (at least small ones like fighters and most bombers) those dispensers are stored next to important systems, because they don't' get that luxury due to the size of the air-frame, so it's obviously something they can contend with, however, you are right, it would be significantly safer and easier to mount these in the rear of the fuselage, likely somewhere under the APU, in the rear section of what is usually the aft luggage compartment. (obviously you'd want these dispensers to be significantly under/behind the horizontal stab and elevators, to nullify the chance of flares/chaff striking your horizontal stab or elevator and causing damage). As far as airframe goes, I'm positive it's been reinforced, although I don't' know what modifications have been made or to what extent, it might be as simple as thickening certain load bearing sections, or replacing key sections of aluminum stringers or bulkheads with titanium or some other alloy, and on top of that, I'm pretty sure that shit's classified so we'll never know for sure

and the airframe is reinforced, but yeah, the nuclear blast stat is bullshit.

The wing contains two or three seperate fuel tanks compartmentalized. it's not like the inside of the wing is just full of fuel, the tanks are mounted in the wing because large wings with dihedral shapes have room in them. I'm not sure if they are or aren't mounted in the wing, since I've scene multiple sources of varying reliability tell it both ways, but there's definatley room to mount chaff and flare pods in the back edge of the wings, and it actually makes sense, since it's further out from the fuselage, so you won't have a hot flare bouncing off of the aluminum body. I also think the air frame itself is actually aluminum, steel, and titanium alloys, but the metal sheeting that covers the air frame is all aluminum alloy.

Well the 747 fuselage is a semi monocoque meaning it's aluminum skin with aluminum stringers and bulkheads. The wings will most likely have a titanium spar or 2 with fuel being stored between them. I believe it has 6 wing tanks and two center wings tanks under the fuselage. What's not being used for fuel storage, flight control systems and electrical systems is packed full of hydraulic tubes and actuators that operate the flaps, slats, ailerons and speed brakes. What rooms that is left is filled with engine control systems. If there was room in the wings for Chaffee and flares they probably wouldn't put them anywhere near such critical components like the engines, fuel, hydraulics and the physical flight controls.
