Boeing 377 Stratocruiser

The Boeing 377 Stratocruiser. Boeing could have made the air bus by making it bigger and put jet engines on its wings. Right?

Are you talking about in real life or in Infinite Flight?

The Boeing 377 Stratocruser was not as big as the Airbus A380 if that is what you are asking.

P.S. You might want to change your title to Boeing 377 Stratocruiser

Early jet engines weren´t as powerful/reliable as the ones of today, and also they had a much higher fuel consumption, so making the fuselage of the B377 bigger and adding jet engines to it would have made the aircraft unprofitable.

It wasn’t as big as the A380.

Infinite flight

A380 was made in 1947

make it mardern

A380 was not made in 1947

Not that simple…

They did make it bigger, though not to what you may have expected:

Doesn’t seem like it. Sounds more about real world aviation…

I’ve never been lucky enough to see one of those. Although, I saw the Beluga once.

Yep-a modified 377.

I think I picked the right guppy…

One time the Boeing 377 Stratocruiser Super Guppy came to Mesa Gateway airport and I got to see it!
