Fact of the Day: Cargo Planes

Despite being the fastest method of travel, when it comes to moving cargo, planes only move less than one percent of the world's cargo around the world. 


  1. The first cargo flight took place on the 7 November 1910 in the USA, between Dayton and Columbus, Ohio. Philip Orin Parmelee piloted a Wright Model B aeroplane 65 miles (105 km) carrying a package of 200 pounds of silk for the opening of a store.

  2. Probably costs a ton to move tons

  3. Wow! That's a surprising number. Can't believe it's that low! Hugs and Happy Sunday! RO

  4. I think we do get most of our supplies on ships instead of planes in Hawaii.

  5. wow, thats eye opening!

  6. You want something fast you pay for it - that means air transport.
    There are many transport aircraft in the air as I type out this.
    Probably about 10 in the air between the US pacific coast
    and Australia right now! Check the US cargo carriers - FEDX and USP.
