Really bizarre, humongous plane (update)

(via leenks.com)

Tagged as an ekranoplan, but that's not what it is. Left it tagged that way anyway.

I should have known this would be featured on Dark Roasted Blend - Monstrous Aviation: World's Biggest Airplanes. From that post, I find this is the Russian Ka-7 dating from the 1930's.

  1. I actually think it may be a fictitious plane used while Young Indiana Jones was trying to convince Fokker to defect to the Allies in WW1.
