The Most amazing airplane in History

 
Posted April 15th, 2014 @ 11:55am

Built in Russia during the 1930s, it flew 11 times before crashing and killing 15 people.

 

The designer, Konstantin Kalinin, wanted to build two more planes but the project was scrapped.

 

Later, Stalin had Kalinin executed. Evidently, it was not good to fail on an expensive project under Stalin.
