Here are the Dimensions of the airplane:  wingspan = 385 ft (117 meters; For compression, NFL is 360 ft in length), 238 ft from nose to tail, 50 ft high with 28 wheels. Announced usage of the plane would be to advance the space travel by cutting the cost of space travel. It is supposed to deliver rockets to 30,000 ft altitude.
