A Caspian sea monster 310 feet long and weighing up to 540 tons . One amazing machine... with rockets! And it's just not big enough. Scroll down for lots of incredible pictures.

Yeah, yeah. I posted two links without waiting. Like anybody's going to notice. Gosh, it sure is lonely in here.

  • That Ekranoplane looks like science fiction model making at it's most ominous. The last link said it was on the order of 310 feet long alright. The first link said 73.8 meters, so that one at least was really only 242 feet long - topping Howard Hughs's flying boat, the Spruce Goose, by 24 feet! *I want one for my desk!*
  • That thing is completely awesome. I think one of my favorite things is the set of photos in your first link. As I scrolled down, I came to realize that this plane is in some overgrown abandoned place. Where the hell is it?
  • Wow, those are great pics! They look steam punkish and Giger all at once.
