It flewed

The caption to the piece says "it can haul 30 tons over a distance of 2,800 miles. Its maximum payload is 37 tons."

Unless they have miraculously cured its weight problem, 30 tons is pretty near the maximum payload. The cited figure is about as accurate as the CRU's global temperature dataset.

At least, though, it makes a change from computer-generated graphics – which is more than we can say for the CRU.
