The engineers at Kalinin got advice from Airbus about how to break the news about weight increases & range reductions to their customers. Money well spent.

"Better have a roll-call before we start cranking up. Looks as if Bloggs and Hoskins have found a way up onto the sun deck, and are standing on top of Nos 2 and 4 ready to practice their wing-walking act !"

It has a Captain and Co-pilot as usual, but requires 3 Flight Engineers. The throttle quadrant looks like a signal-box!

The design bureau have provided a tail-wheel in case you over-rotate while trying to get it into the air.

And here it is, folks: the Flying Condo!
As you can see, there is a beautiful balcony on the center-top where a swimming pool will be located. The gyms are in the back, and the restaurant is below the balcony.
If you follow me, I will show you the ones still available....

No, that's not it's model number, that's it's postcode.

'I was really drunk at a government auction, bought a squadron of surplus Tiger Moths, a dozen old greenhouses and ten container loads of corrugated iron, got really drunk again and, well, here's the result.'
