Someone asked me if Boeing enlarged the horizontal stab on the 747 when they
extended the upper deck to compensate for the CG change.  I don't think the
stab was changed.  I figure that considering the high weight of all the fuel
that could be in different places affecting the CG that the extra weight of the
extended upper deck really is relatively small.  Does anyone know?  Was there
any stab change or did they recalibrate the trim's zero setting?
