Re: Turn one into a passenger aircraft
"Having the whole front section of the aircraft just lift up "
Would be a bit of a problem if that section happened to be pressurised - and somewhat of a problem in flight if it wasn't although the passengers would be quiet at any rate. (Clue: It isn't)
The AN225 is the only aircraft with a huge _pressurised_ cargo bay and if you could perfect a rapid pod (un)loader for it, it might fit the bill :)
