Well, the board is either fixed, or it's going to run terribly. Cross your fingers and hope for the best. I'm at my technical limit right now.

RUSSIAN 727

#1 Post by OLDGUNNER » Mon Jan 01, 2018 2:23 pm

This is the plane that I flew out of Russia on... Yes, it looks like a Boeing 727. The Russians are famous for coping things especially air planes. They save all the costs on design and development. But they did beef up the landing gear and wings...and have lots of oil to off-set that. And actually they can operate that from a dirt runway. When they copied the B-29, that’s a funny story.
