    So do you think firing 7 - 14" guns would cause a problem?

    I would think that firing those guns in flight would stop you dead in mid air...similar thing happened in the days of WWI fighters, albeit on a smaller scale.

    Land, yes. Take off, no. It would help with the tree trimming as well.

    Er, all of those pictures are computer generated... Take a look at the people getting in/out of it for confirmation.

    All three are faked. The original that did exist wasn't nearly that big and had only (!) seven engines. See the pictures in the two linked articles.

    The word "lumbering" immediately springs to mind.
