Is there a super plane to carry planes?
The Airbus Beluga, carriers parts of larger planes to the assembly plants.

A train inside a plane !
mighty! But it does not transport recreational planes to desired flying locations. Or does it? Cessnas tetris-ed in cargo hold :-)
Likewise, Boeing have the Dreamlifter https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Boeing_Dreamlifter
Military helicopters are often transported by plane http://storage.lfpress.com/v1/dynamic_resize/sws_path/suns-prod-images/1297493251462_ORIGINAL.jpg?quality=80&size=650x&stmp=1384732519784
Discovery (what used to be a good channel years ago but now turned into a reality channel) has done this to death.
Still my favourite channel tho
Eden is a bit better but has already gotten worse, pandering to the crowd.
Some stuff on PBS is good, historical stuff.
Agreed. I am now an expert in fresh tuna pricing for some reason unknownst to myself.
Better than History Channel turning into Redneck TV though.
You would wonder how often a ship like this would need to be used – as in, if they needed to move a yacht from point A to point B, would it not be easier to just sail it?
(wholly ignorant of all things nautical, btw)
Yes it would be easier. But I imagine the super rich buying such yachts want it to have no “maiden” voyage when they get it.
if one lives in Britain but wants to sail around Carribean without long crossing. to check offshore bank account.
Most of these vessels do not have the fuel capacity to cross an ocean. Or the capacity to deal with weather.
I thought it’d be more for factory deliveries or like a ferry service for people who want to move their yachts from point A to point B for the winter?
Super wealthy move their yachts depending on season. They might use them in the Med during the summer and then move them to Gulf for the winter. Some of them even wrap them in plastic and load them onto ships to protect them from damage and to ensure nobody enters them while in transport.
And I’d say a good lot them move copious amounts of snort too.
Ha ha, cling-filmed boats! Do they season them before marinating? :-)
