See how to make yourself comfortable in heavens: http://www.architecturaldigest.com/architects/100/craig_wright/wright_article_022008 Something which impressed me:
At the same time, two of the three engines on the tail were replaced with larger, more efficient, and exponentially more powerful ones, and the third was rebuilt; all the instrumentation was highly modified (“We meet Stage Four—the current environmental requirements of the newest airplanes”); and extra fuel tanks were added, as well as heavier landing gear (“We really weight up—we’re 175,000 pounds fully loaded”).
Wow. Stage 4 727-100. And the MTOW of -100 was less, I thought. But something to snigger at: http://www.architecturaldigest.com/architects/100/craig_wright/wright_slideshow_022008?slide=9 Note the mirror that high up, compared to: http://www.architecturaldigest.com/architects/100/craig_wright/wright_slideshow_022008?slide=8 How much of his face do you think the 6 year old can see?
