I am pleased to welcome you to my personal blog, which I started in March 2009. I first became interested in blogging about five years ago, using old "blogger.com", which was cumbersome to use and I never mastered. About a year ago I discovered that Google had bought "blogger.com" and had revised it considerably, making it fun to use, so much so that I have devised at least 15 blogs on various subjects and frequently add posts and Gadgets to them.

Russia's Heavy Bomber of 1933

In the 1930s the Russian army was obsessed with the idea of creating huge planes. At that time, they were proposed to have as many propellers as possible
to help carry those huge flying fortresses into the air. Jet propulsion has not been implemented yet.

Not many photos were saved from that time, because of the high secrecy levels of such projects and because a lot of time had passed already. Still, on the photo above you can see one of such planes -a heavy K.7 bomber .
