If you are one of the lucky four million people who have ordered a new Apple iPhone 6, it's likely that your new hard phone is in the picture above. This is a photo of the bay of a Boeing 747 flying across the Pacific Ocean, carrying more than 195,000 iPhones. What an impressive number!

The cargo weighs about 256,000 pounds ( about 116 tons ), making the total weight of aircraft close to maximum takeoff of 643,000 pounds. According to the plane's pilot, about 20 to 30 similar weight cargo planes fly out of Chinese airspace every day.

The impressive numbers of human and energy spent to transport only a portion of the iPhone 6 orders have helped us get a more comprehensive view of the entire process of manufacturing and distributing iPhone 6. Just three more days, the iPhone will officially reach consumers!
