OK...as I have stated on numerous other posts, consider me an idiot when it comes to things technical and mechanical...but I have to ask....is it just me, or are the tails on many Russian-built airliners exceptionally tall? We don't get many flying in to Bermuda but there was one a few weeks ago, and the tail really caught my eye. It was enormous, so I decided to look at photographs of some Russian-built airliners, and many of them seem to have these massive tails.
Don't ask me which airliner it was, because it was a while back, but if this is the case....is there a reason for this?
(Also, if I'm in the wrong forum, please just shift this!!)
