This 848 aircraft in this download package, is for Version 10.03 and above only.
There are four variations of the 848 uploaded to X-Plane.
848 Qantas in Civilian Heavy Weight
848-F FedEx in Civilian Heavy Weight
848B52uav in Military after 1946
Boeing 848 Galaxy II in Military after 1946
The Russian AN-225 Mira holds the world record for lifting 550,000lbs.
This aircraft beats that by 45% with a maximum load of 800,000lbs.
The AN-225 uses 6 engines and the Galaxy II uses 3 newer engines with much better fuel economy and range.
The Lockheed C5M Galaxy is old ( as C5A it is from 1968), and not even comparable to either of the above.
Global range without refueling? YES, at lighter loads!
Maximum take off weight: 2,000,000 lbs
Range: with 400,000lbs cargo load “GLOBAL”
Initial Cruise altitude: 25,000ft, after fuel has burned off 1/4 of the fuel a higher altitude is available, and the range computer will show more range. Schedule another climb at 1/2 fuel, for maximum range.
Takeoff and landing at full flap settings, expect to be off the ground between 8,000ft and 10,000ft.
If a full automatic takeoff is planned (highly suggested) do not arm heading until above 40kts. The nose wheel is set for 65º ground turning and drops to 1-3 º above 40kts.
If a manual takeoff is planned, hold full stick back until airborne, level off immediately at liftoff.
