Re: B747F at FL450?!

Occasionally freighters will fly almost completely empty. Unlike people carrying passenger planes, there are many unidirectional freight routes. The 747 has a high maximum cruising altitude because this allows the plane to pretty much fly direct any where they want to go without worrrying about traf...
