In this picture from 2016, our Super Guppy, a specialized aircraft with a unique hinged nose, lands at Moffett Field at NASA Ames. Boasting an immense cargo area that is 25 feet in diameter and 111 feet long, the Super Guppy can carry items that are virtually impossible to fit inside other cargo aircraft.

In early August 2022, it arrived at Marshall with a structural test article of part of NASA’s mega Moon rocket. The hardware was used in test campaigns at Marshall and NASA’s Kennedy Space Center in Florida and was returned to Marshall for storage.
