Thirty years ago, when the Air Force needed a large cargo plane, it put out a list of specifications that took up less than 8 pages. Lockheed responded with a proposal 3/4" thick, which resulted in a huge plane named the Hercules. In 1980, when the Air Force needed a new cargo plane, it issued specifications that took up 2,750 pages. Lockheed's proposal alone weighed 6,600 pounds. To deliver it, the company used one of the old Hercules cargo planes.

- John Tierney, in Science 85
