The military has one called the C-5 Galaxy and NASA has one that looks like a snake that just ate an animal called the Super Guppy (opens left to right) that is being used extensively to transport the pieces for the largest and most powerful rocket ever built, the SLS, to take us to Mars (launch test to begin next year!).

Russia has the world's largest aircraft, the 6 engine, 32 wheel Antonov-225 that opens from the front also.

Bloodhound's rocket-powered test run delayed to 2019
Rachel England, Engadget 21 hours ago

"The project is out of money. Again."



"Hopes that the Bloodhound supersonic car project was making progress in its land speed record bid have been dampened yet again. Due to a lack of funding, trials that may have paved the way for the 1,000mph record have been pushed back to May next year, although the date of the overall record attempt taking place in South Africa -- late 2019 -- still stands."
