Yeah the CNN link stopped working.

I always check my links after posting, and it did work.

The Beluga XL with the smile was the image I saw first on the CNN site.....thought it was from The Onion or something.

It was the XL with the smile that I was referring to..........

"Its maiden flight is scheduled for summer 2018 before 10 months of flight tests necessary for its certification campaign and a 2019 service entry."

Peegoo, I flew on one of those from Hawaii to SFO when I was coming home on emergency leave from Nam. It was empty (no cargo) but the flight was a disaster. During flight we had an engine fire which was extinguished without any problems. The thing was, we hadn't reached the point of no return, so we turned around and went back to Hickam AFB. I ended up having to take a commercial flight to San Diego.

Those whale planes have been in the sky for a while and I think they are impressive.
