That is almost as ugly as the 380. Almost.

Talk about duct tape engineering. Wonder how much bailing wire is in there holding that thing on.

Hahaha. That's pretty hilarious. This is a perfect example of why Boeing is killing Airbus in the widebody market. Airbus just doesn't get it!

Can't help but wonder why the engineering boys in Toulouse didn't think about a freighter model when they built this thing originally. Or did they just think freight only moves by rail or boat?

Glad to see they are adding bumps for Boeing's pleasure.

Seems to take a styling cue from early Citroens.

Wonder if they'll remember to make the wire bundles longer?
