Very interesting. The max takeoff weight of a 747 has throughout it's variants has always been approx double the dry weight. This Green Woodpeckers freight capacity appears to be the same.
I am not sure about it's cert of airworthiness however because carriage of Weasels must fall into some hazardous classification I would have thought.

The Eagle may soar majestic,
but you don't suck a Stoat
into your jet engines.
Please leave the water and
banks as you would wish to
find them.

Of course it,s real, here is proof that this is a not uncommon happening.
Extract fom the Chronicle of St.Woodbastwick the Pecker circa 936.

Freddie the weasel ran out of diesel
Whilst cruising across Barton Broad
His old engine stuttered and Freddies heart fluttered
And the weather - well it simply poured.

No help could be sighted and the weasel benighted
Was in a great state of despair
When on his half decker landed a friendly woodpecker
And said we can take to the air.

It,s the first time i,ve flown said the weasel air borne,
And maybe you think that i,m daft
But the weathers not kind and if you don,t mind
I,d rather return to my craft.

What more evidence do you need - the truth will always prevail.

               best wishes from Brian.

nazdar,
