Loading NASA Aircraft Into Super Ugly Giant Headed Plane


The Aero Spacelines Super Guppy is a large, wide-bodied cargo aircraft that is used for hauling outsize cargo components. It was the successor to the Pregnant Guppy, the first of the Guppy aircraft produced by Aero Spacelines, which in turn was named for its resemblance to a pregnant guppy. Five were built in two variants, both of which were colloquially referred to as the “Super Guppy”.


It is the ugliest, yet most useful plane in NASA’s fleet.Though it looks more like a massive fish than an aircraft, the Guppy is used to ship immensely large parts all across the world.


The Guppy’s extra-wide cargo bay allows it to transport military jet aircraft with wingspans of 7.6-meters. The following video shows NASA loading two T-38A Talon jets into the cargo bay of the Guppy.
