The Crazy 747 Aircraft Carrier Concept

It sounds like science fiction: A Boeing 747 with an internal hanger loaded with 10 specially designed fighter jets. A Jumbo aircraft carrier concept.

An on board crew to launch, recover, refuel and rearm the jets while in mid-flight. Sleeping quarters and a crew lounge to ensure that a squadron of 14 fighter pilots and 18 mission specialists stay rested. All of it hurtling forward at Mach 0.85, 35 thousand feet above sea-level. That’s asking a lot from a Boeing 747 Jumbo Jet. But a once classified feasible study prepared for the U.S. Air Force details how it could be done.
