Can anyone explain how all the controls from the cockpit to the the rear of the aircraft are connected that allows the front portion to open?
Gary Schenauer
Hi, Sam. I cannot provide a definitive answer to your question; however, I do know a website that may be helpful to you.
Go to Daren Savage's website >> www.allaboutguppys.com/
It is exactly what it indicates ... it gives tons of info about all the Guppy aircraft.
Also, Sam, I'm posting that snapshot of a Kaman Huskie helicopter (similar to the Huskie in your pic) that I mentioned in my comment under your photo. It is on static display at Castle Air Museum in Atwater, CA. I'm putting it in the gallery now.

Hey Gary, Everything you ever wanted to know about the Guppy aircraft is on that website or leads to more info. I've copied a small section from another site that answered my question and the url for that page. Thank you Gary, and I really appreciate your aviation knowledge...Sam

( When I asked what aspects of operating the Super Guppy make it particularly noteworthy, Elliot pointed to the front of the airplane: "The most unique thing about the aircraft is the nose opening. The flight engineer uses a checklist to ensure all of the cables and locks are removed in the proper order before we open the nose but it is definitely an art when you close it. You have to get the locking pins to align after you have added or removed weight and the aircraft has settled. It can be...interesting." )
