Boeing's 747 Large Cargo Freighter Development on Plan

The Large Cargo Freighter represents Boeing's commitment to new production system methods on the 787. It is the first time that Boeing jetliner production will rely primarily on airplanes for delivery of components. Certification of the airplane is expected in 2006. The airplane's unique design will enable the entire aft fuselage to swing open, allowing 787 major assemblies to be loaded and unloaded.
