The Boeing RC-1, short for ""Resource Carrier 1"", was a design for an enormous cargo aircraft intended to haul oil and minerals out of the northern reaches of Alaska and Canada where ice-free ports were not available. It was optimized for short-haul missions only, carrying cargo to locations for loading onto ships, trains or pipelines. Depending on the role, the design was nicknamed ""Brute Lifter"" or ""Flying Pipeline"".The basic design had a rectangular wing spanning almost 150 metres (500 ft), was powered by 12 Pratt & Whitney JT9D engines, and had 56 wheels in the main landing gear. A total of 1,000,000 kilograms (2,300,000 lb) of cargo was carried in two under-wing pods and fuselage. The RC-1 would have been roughly twice the size and mass of the Antonov An-225 Mriya, the largest aircraft built, but would have carried about five times the payload.The RC-1 was designed in the early 1970s. The rapid increase in jet fuel prices after 1973 doomed the project to be uneconomical.
