Beautyful ekranoplane, but how ugly looks the comunistic symbol on the navy's flag... guys the iron curtain fell long time ago...

A visitor from United States posted Sat July 5, 2008:
I am pretty sure that this is a "pole queen" A display aircraft. the "pontoons" are static display mounts. notice the posts in the water aft of the tail and at the nose. more can be found by searching "wing in ground".

A visitor from - posted Sun June 22, 2008:
To commenter before me, it never had pontoons. it would fly just above the water. those pontoons are there for balancing the aircraft.

A visitor from United States posted Thu June 12, 2008:
Thats really cool. Those pontoons look they will create a lot of drag when the craft takes off. Is this one of those hybrid things that sort of skims over the water like a hovercraft?

A visitor from Czech Republic posted Thu June 12, 2008:
Wow! Russians ekranoplans are amazing. I wish to I could see one of them glide by own eyes.

A visitor from United States posted Wed June 11, 2008:
That is one crazy looking plane

A visitor from Canada posted Wed June 11, 2008:
Cool, looks like they're restoring it. Can we have more details? Has it started flying, er, hovering again?
