About the Boeing 747-400 LCF Dreamlifter

When Boeing executives got fed up waiting an average of 30 days for the new 787 part to arrive, Boeing engineers took an existing 747-400 airliner, grafted a wider fuselage onto the airframe, installed a tail swing door allowing greater access into the gaping fuselage, gave it a new name, and created a worthy rival to the Antonov An-225.

The Boeing Dreamlifter is a modified outsized cargo aircraft with three times the cargo capacity of a Boeing 747-400F freighter and capable of delivering Boeing 787 wings from Japan to Boeing’s Seattle plant in just 8 hours. Boeing built four Dreamlifters to haul Boeing 787 aircraft parts from its suppliers in Asia, Europe, and the United States. During the COVID-19 pandemic, the Boeing Dreamlifter flew medical supplies, including five hundred thousand face masks for Utah’s high school students and teachers.

Fun fact: The Boeing Dreamlifter is 18 inches larger than the Airbus A380 fuselage, which is the world’s largest passenger airplane.

The Dreamlifter is one of the largest aircraft ever made.
