The Longer-Range 747-400 Freighter, scheduled for entry into service in late 2002, has a maximum takeoff weight of 910,000 pounds (412,770 kg) - allowing it to fly an additional 525 nautical miles (972 kilometers). Or, it can carry an additional 22,000 pounds (9,980 kg) of payload on long-range flights at maximum takeoff weight.

Right. So at a [b]Million[/b] pounds takeoff someone is going to explain to me that [i]air[/i] is holding it up? Invisible aliens is sounding more and more plausible by the second. [(:|)] A picture shown visible here for the first time for you non-believers...

That is a web site in England, and didn't they introduce us to crop circles? They also think of us as a bunch of barbarians because we don't have total gun control. Then again they have lots of guns used in crime. Some good their laws did. So them coming up with the idea that Boeing engineered a plane that requires alien assistance doesn't really surprise me.

An airfoil and an understanding of physics can result in seemingly amazing things.

Belief in little green men, crop circles and a tin foil hat is much more entertaining... [:)]
