“If a 747 can carry the space shuttle, then I call bullshit on overweight luggage fees”

“If a 747 can carry the space shuttle, then I call bullshit on overweight luggage fees” is a saying that has been printed on many images.
     
“If an everyday Boeing 747 can carry a whole damn space shuttle, Airlines shouldn’t have to charge overweight luggage fees. #discovery” was posted on Twitter by Chris Cruz on April 17, 2012. “IF A 747 CAN CARRY THE SPACE SHUTTLE, THEN I CALL BULLSHIT ON OVERWIEGHT LUGGAGE FEES” (shown on an image) was posted on 9GAG on September 24, 2012.
   
       
Wikipedia: Shuttle Carrier Aircraft
The Shuttle Carrier Aircraft (SCA) are two extensively modified Boeing 747 airliners that NASA used to transport Space Shuttle orbiters. One is a 747–100 model, while the other is a short range 747-100SR.
 
The SCAs were used to ferry Space Shuttles from landing sites back to the Shuttle Landing Facility at the Kennedy Space Center. The orbiters were placed on top of the SCAs by Mate-Demate Devices, large gantry-like structures that hoisted the orbiters off the ground for post-flight servicing then mated them with the SCAs for ferry flights.
