Description
This was the adopted name for an enormous Ground Effect Vehicle constructed for the Soviet Union in 1966. In Russian it was called an Ekranoplan and this particular military freighter was 92 metres in length and weighed 544 tonnes. Only one was built and, when it crashed in fog in 1980, it was too heavy to recover. #aircraft #ekranoplan #freighter #ground_effect_vehicle #jet #military #Russian
