In July, I was flying (again!) and got the aircraf’s magazine…. At the “aviation history” section a report regarding “the ekranoplane” took my attention. What’s that? A dino? A flying dino?
Not! was the Ekranoplane! A fantastic, enormous, extrange…. aircraft. The history began at mid-60s with a photo taken by an spy satellite, which shows a peculiar Russian plane… surfing by the sea! Do you want to see what it is? Search pictures by Google.. Or better if you want, the great cold war Soviet monsters still are at the mercy of satellites… just punch the coordinates into Google Earth to find one: +42º 52′ 54.00 and 47º 39′ 24.00
