Ekranoplan in Dry Dock

We've featured the Ekranoplan, the insanely huge sea plane (something between a hovercraft and an airplane) developed by the Soviets before, but most photos of the beast we've seen had been old and grainy black and white photos.

Livejournal user igor113 took a ton of new photos of the Ekranoplan as it is currently sitting on a dry dock, rusting away like yet another Cold War relic. Check 'em out: Link - via Core77

That's correct. That is a ton of photos. It was a tease right until the end, too - does he go in? does he go in? Yeah, but only one picture.

An Ekranoplan makes an appearance in the 2008 James Bond novel DEVIL MAY CARE by Sebastian Faulks.

Also in the 2010 James Bond video game BLOODSTONE.
