Exclamation AN124 vs. B744LCF vs. C5 (photos)

Ever wondered the sizes of these three ?

Antonov AN-124
Wing span 73.30m (240ft), length 69.10m (226ft), height 20.78m (68ft 2in).

C-5 Galaxy
Wing span 67.80m (222.9ft), length 75.30m (247.10ft), height 19.84m (65.1ft).

B744LCF
Wing span 64.44m (211ft), length 70.67m (231ft), height 19.41m (63ft).

Conclusion: Judging by the numbers above:


Antonov AN-124
1 - wins the round for being the widest in term of total wingspan (Left wingtip to right wingtip)
2 - wins the round for being the tallest in term of total height (Pavement to the top of tail fin)

C-5 Galaxy
1 - wins the round for the being the longest in term of total length. (Nose to tailbutt)

B747-400LCF
0 - Loses for being the shortest, came in as secondlongest aircaft, not good enough though, and comes last as being the smallest of all three candidates.

I wanted to include the cargo volume stuff, but I can't seem to find the LCF's cargo volume measurements right now, All I know is that it can carry more than three times the cargo capacity of a standard 747-400 freighter.

So untill I get the LCF's cargo volume measurements, the winner is the Great Antonov 124, with 2 points in the lead, and C5 with 1 point as in second place and the LCF in deadlast place.

But only untill we get to convince GJ to produce the AN225 in 1:400 scale, the winner is the AN124.

In the meantime, enjoy some of my shots.



















Ps: We want the AN225 !!!!

Yes the day Airbus decides to make an A380 Fat-Luga.

So far these three are large volume freigther, till then the A380 only wins the title as the biggest commercial airliner.

Specificationally the AN225 is the biggest aircraft in the world.

lol if i had to choose between the LCF and beluga, id choose beluga as there was creativity that went into that design. boeings design is more practical..."oh we need space a fuselage, lets just make the body big enough to fit one"

Yeah, you're pretty much right. I think that was very creative to relocate the cockpit. They even added extra stabilizer fins.

Just take a look at this one.
