Cool Ekranoplan Video

From Wikipedia

The Lun-class ekranoplan Ground effect vehicle (“harrier”; NATO reporting name Duck) was an unusual aircraft designed by Rostislav Evgenievich Alexeev and used by the Soviet & Russian navies from 1987 to sometime in the late ’90s. Ground effect aircraft use the extra lift of their large wings when in proximity to the surface (about one to four meters). It is one of the largest ever built, with a length of 73m, rivaling the Hughes H-4 Hercules (“Spruce Goose”) and many modern jumbo jets.
