Boeing 747 freighter operated by China Airlines Cargo

They may fail to receive the same amount of attention as their passenger-carrying cousins, but cargo and freighter aircraft are in many ways the lifeblood of the world economy. Vast fleets of cargo aircraft operated by shipping giants like UPS and the US Postal Service are vital to maintaining production rates in many high-tech industries. Most commercial transports are not necessarily designed as such but instead are modified from military transports or other types of commercial aircraft. While most are difficult to distinguish from these original models, some (like the Super Guppy and An-225) take on monstrous new characteristics dictated by their peculiar transport capabilities.
