Lun-class ekranoplan

The Lun-class ekranoplan was a ground effect aircraft designed by Rostislav Evgenievich Alexeev and used by the Soviet and Russian navies from 1987 to sometime in the late 1990s.

Lun was one of the largest seaplanes ever built, with a length of 73 m, rivaling the Hughes H-4 Hercules ("The Spruce Goose") and many jumbo jets.
