mmc's response indicates this isn't true -- a substantial part of the lift is generated by the non-wing parts of the plane.

Thanks for the response Mike. I'm fairly certain that's and old Canadian Pacific plane, so that's likely the Canadian Rockies, likely Mt. Robson in the background. To get back to the point, is there a smart way one could compute the amount of lift generated by the airframe other than the wings?
