Boeing lends a helping…
What would the motivation be? Wouldn’t this take away from potential 747-8F? Maybe they do not compete, and this is a good way to sell parts.
Boeing’s Dreamlifter and Airbus’s Beluga are for in-house use only, specifically for transporting parts to build their aircrafts. It’s not available for commercial customers. The largest cargo aircraft Boeing has is the 748-F. Airbus doesnt have plans to make a freighter version of the A380.
I want to assume that it was either Boeing or Airbus for this and it went to Boeing.
