Ok, I know very little about the Orlyonok. I would appreciate it if you could share what you know with me. I am uncertain if it is military or civil, so I chose to post it in this forum. I am sorry if I chose the wrong one. All I know is that four were built, and only one survives.

Paging Dr. 2H4. You are needed urgently over at Mil/Space.


Isn't the surviving one in a museum somewhere? I doubt it's still flying (or floating, or whatever it is these things do).



Looks like I picked the wrong week to quit posting...

It had been restored a year or so back and is now an exhibit in the Naval Museum in Moscow - and fittingly not on boring dry land  Smile.
