Seriously, I want one
« on: September 16, 2008, 04:34:44 PM »
This had to be the coolest plane ever. Jet engines, on floats, with retractable gear for runway ops. Its got two fans, and a glass cockpit with center mounted sticks. You could pretty much take this thing anywhere. Sweet  ::party::

I bet it even runs on vodka (Probably cheaper anyways)

Search for the "Kaspian Sea Monster" and you will find an even better one! Have a look here:

Beriev build quite a lot different ground effect planes (they call'em Ekranoplane). There are also videos on youtube.

Depending on its success someone may create an AI model. (A flyable one is here: http://www.avsim.su/files.phtml?action=download&id=6198&hl=be-200 )
From wiki 8 have been build so far. I read somewhere not too long ago Mr. Putin ordered four of the military variant (A-42) for the Navy being operational 2013 (or 2015; unfortunatly I could not find the article).
Maybe I'll install that bird and assign some flightplans from Gelendzhik to Greece, Portugal and Italy where they estinguished fires the last summers ::rolleyes:

Is that a topless woman in the background?
There's no reason to become alarmed, and we hope you'll enjoy the rest of your flight. By the way, is there anyone on board who knows how to fly a plane?

Nice to see someone still has other interests besides airplanes.

No guys, I meant the real one.

Any chance that if I request this on the PMDG forums they'll get to work on it and have it ready any time soon?
