NASA’s Super Guppy aircraft is one of the most extravagant cargo planes in the world. The awkwardly shaped aircraft has been in service since 1965, and was specifically designed to carry oversized payloads, like rocket stages and spacecrafts.

Very few people have ever stepped foot on a boat made by yacht design studio Wally—builder of the fastest yachts on the planet—and even fewer have stepped foot inside their loud, hot workshop in Monte Carlo. British photographer Benedict Redgrove is one of them. Here's what a $33 million yacht looks like before the…
