This is one of the weirdest exhibit of the Air Force Museum in Monino, the Moscow Region: a Bartini plane that was turned into an ekranoplan. Today we'll study the exterior of the vehicle.
The wings and the empennage are dosmantled, no engines are left. VVA-14 was made on the basis of an amphibian project MVA-62 developed in 1962. The main constructor - R.L. Bartini. Both the amphibian and its creator were quite unusual for their time.
