AMN from last November has a note saying that Boeing might put the
stronger wing and landing gear of the 747-400F on the passenger -400
with a weight increase to 920,000 lbs.  In addition to a payload
increase of 22,000 lbs, they mention bigger wing tanks plus tanks in
the horizontal and *vertical* tail, for a 300 nm range increase.
(The tank in the horizontal tail is already an option but the one in
the vertical tail would be new.)
