1 MILLION Pounds Challenge (Ended)

A Boeing 747 has MTOW of nearly 1 million pounds. Antonov 225 has MTOW of about 1.4 million. But that's its MAXIMUM weigth. Can YOU desing a plane that can carry its own weigth and 1 million pounds of additional cargo? Such a plane (if constructed irl) would be the most powerful aircraft ever. The rules are simple; make any vehicle (plane, truck, boat, airship...), XML allowed, you CAN remove the 1M lbs sign, and the vehicle must be able to move/fly around without any major problems, all while carriying this piece of fuselage which was modded to weigth exactly 1 million pounds. There is realy no deadline and no winners, I just think it would be cool to see some heavy lifters being made for simple planes. Good luck, and most importantly, enjoy.

    @Stevoaviation yes of course, the only important thing is the fuselage itself

    @BaconEggs as I said in the decription, there is really no deadline, but if you want one, you can consider the end of 2017 as a deadline...
    The point of this challenge was supposed to be making a vehicle that can carry that block of fuselage
