The Bay Area Sea Monster??Doesn't quite have the same ring to it as the Caspian Sea Monster
Maybe the Navy thought the ocean would be calm enough each time they needed to land this plane? ⚓
+Kamal Tailor достаточно посмотреть видео с самолетом БЕ- 200. Он и плавает и летает.
Ekranoplane. Or ground effect planehttps://youtu.be/Oh5nuWhhHmQ
Beautiful post. Thanks friend 🌹 🌿
Imaginary airplane…not real !
It would be very crazy if it was real.
WHOAH!! That looks amazing.. and dangerous. :p
Russia built several ekranoplans, but they didn't last long.
Show essa aeronave.
Should be a great transport attachment for uber valuable cargoes !
Interesting documentary on the Soviet version of this. I believe it was designed for troop transport to be used in an all out assault on an enemy.
+Danny Quizon It does not fly. It's a hydroplane.
Actually a WIG (wing in ground-effect) plane flies at an altitude of about half its wingspan. It takes advantage of the much greater lift at that height. They're always shown over water because that's the only place it's possible to fly at that height.
+Brando Phoenix Oh okay. It's like Howard Hughes' Spruce Goose. 😀 👍
Not a bad comparison, actually. The Goose never got out of ground effect, and never really proved its airworthiness.
+Danny Quizon Yeah kind of. It barely elevates above the water. Soviets would test their version on the Black Sea I believe. I also believe it was a highly classified project by the Soviets. It was designed for blitzkrieg mass invasions.

Most expensive jet ski ever
Looks like it would burn fuel really quickly, so not much range.
Reverse that picture man!
It's not just a job! It's an adventure.
I was in the Navy for a bit. After you get in, they tell you "It's not just an adventure! It's a job."
Rota, Spain in the mid eighties, and back when i was in school here in the states i thought the old navy commercial said it the other way around before i joined.
Funny, guess where I am right now? Rota Spain 😉
