The airplane featured in the previous post is in fact the Boeing Dreamlifter a modified 747. The airplane’s trademark hump was designed to add room such that 787 fuselage sections could fit inside the giant airplane. Currently, many of the fuselage sections for the 787 are made in South Carolina and are flown by the Dreamlifter to Everett WA where the plane is assembled. Along with the large hump, the Dreamlifter has a tail that breaks away and opens like a door to allow the fuselage sections to be loaded.
