Aerospace Russian Plane

  1. Feb 28, 2005 #1
    Years ago on the now defunct show Beyond 2000 there was a prototype aircraft being built in Russia that had no wings as such. Its shell had rectangle holes in it that I guess let air get in and flow over tiny internal wings or something. Anyone know what I'm talking about? It was big but not as big as a commercial airliner and was about half as wide as it was long. It was never finished as far as I know. They lost funding I think.

    Would call that an out of the box design ... but the expression doesn't quite apply ... :biggrin: .
