On a side note: I'm not sure I've ever seen an airplane where the nose flipped open?!

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.
