LANGLEY, Va. -- A plane that looks like a massive fish landed at NASA's Langley facility on Friday.

NASA calls it the 'Super Guppy.' The size and shape of the plane allows it to carry especially large cargo. In this case, it was carrying an especially large fuselage.

Researchers at the fuselage are planning to test the fuselage, which they're hoping to use in future designs.
