Pity it had to end this way for the Ekranoplan. Such an interesting piece of technology.
Not ended: Ria.ru
Just hibernated for awhile.
That's nice news, this thing is too cool to retire.
well thats good.... when i first saw this pic i was like "why isn't this in a museum?" god knows its a great part of history
then again Russia is lucky to still have a complete Ekranoplan. The Canadian's only have the nose and cockpit to remind them of the Avro Arrow.
