…that thing will never fly:
Someone mentioned the Mriya in our last wacky airplane thread (might need a new tag), and as it was this video that led me on to the Beluga photo that gave us all such nachas yesterday, here it is in all it’s glory.
What a beast. It truly looks (to me) utterly incapable of slipping the surly bonds of earth. And yet it does. And it allows me to say, with a straight face and no hint of double entendre: check out the gear on that baby.
Anyway — it’s time for some more thread, and here it is. Talk about whatever.
