Question Boating on 9-11. What is this??

We were out in the middle of our reservoir sipping on a few koolaids and this flew over us It must of been only flying about 100mph. It was hard to believe it was flying so slow .It must of landed at our air guard base and I figure it was heading to the coast for the Hurricane relief ?

Looks big

Saw it on TV. It is made by AirBus, and is the largest commercial airplane in existance/operation. Its called the Beluga, and has more cargo capacity than a C5 Galaxy.

It's cool to see all to that info in one place. The media has not done a very good job of informing us as to what is being done by the res of the world to help out.

The Bananas do seem a little strange when you look at everything else on that list.
