Yet another result of unexpected consequences - the Ilyushin team found that putting a four-pronged addition of the nose-wheel leg had the desired result of preventing the critical Mach drag rise of the fuselage. They couldn't retract the wheel, so the Mcrit of 60 kt was rarely achieved anyway.

Of course it doesn't reach the other building. Everyone knows airplanes have cockpits, not bridges.

Nyet, nyet, Sergey, the fuselage spec said, "Build-in equipment for plenty of window," not "Building equipped with plenty of windows".

At the Russian Museum of Failed Prototypes, the IL-18 is incongruously parked next to the Fencer.
