About This Image
Panorama made in 2 parts.
In 1932 Russia commissioned a great passenger plane to honor her famous writer Maxim Gorky. The plane was intended for Stalinist propaganda purposes. It had eight engines. Its wingspan was greater than a 747's. It cruised at 137 miles per hour and had a range of 1200 miles. The Maxim Gorky did not survive very long - it crashed just a few months after its test flight.
