English Russia » Chernobyl Scrap Metal English Russia » Ekranoplan English Russia » Military Aircraft Show in Monino. Moscow Been looking at the various aircraft in the links above and can't help but to think that some of these designs, are not only bonkers but absolutley genius. Especially the Ekranoplan. If that had worked or gone into production, we could have suffered quite seriously if on the recieving end. Some of he helicopter designs are strange to say the least (compared to Western designs) but does that make them bad aircraft? Has anyone on here actually flown in one of these aircraft? The biggest freak of nature is the bear. These things are so loud, apparently submarines can hear them?
