After about 30 photos this weekend, the only tail end shot was a cellphone shot.

Tail End Tuesday!

...a little different perspective. This is the tail end (aft of the cockpit area) of my ride before it is loaded. The engine in view is one of two that have a combined thrust of 100,000 pounds.

Interesting. Is the cargo in containers shaped to maximize space of the curved walls? How long is the loading time?

yeap, containers match interior dimensions, some containers are loading at FedEx Ground hubs which have rollers on the floor as well as 53' trailers with rollers, so they just roll those containers around.

Yes! Here are a couple of stock internet shots. There are “cans” for the upper (main) deck (where people would sit if it was a people carrier and cans for the lower decks (where people’s baggage and cargo are loaded if it was a people carrier):

What is the length of the 'upper cans' ? ( 10 ft ? )

Does FedEx ever sell off their 'old' ones? ...I have an idea!

Funny guys! 😆

I flashed back to 1995... I was in a big exercise outside of Cairo Egypt. The fighters were flying during the day. We special operators were flying nights. The fighters insisted on coming back to the pattern and making all sorts of ruckus while we were trying to sleep (as opposed to just on full-stop landing). We eventually buzzed the camp at O-dark-30 at 100’ wide-the-F-open!🤟 Their beauty sleep got interrupted, but based on the above picture, not as badly as JSHACK. 😜:cool:🤣

I have occasionally 'flashed back' to nearly the same, but to an earlier time like mid 60's and early 70's, not sure I would be so kind to call it a ruckus... LoL
