The Caspian Sea Monster (05.30, 13.30, 21.30)

In August of 1967 an American spy satellite took sensational photographs. A huge unknown machine of 100 meters long and about 500 tons of weight, which looked like an aircraft, was flying over the Caspian Sea waters with more than 500 kilometers of speed. Pentagon analysts called this object “the Caspian sea monster”. It was an airfoil boat which was constructed to make the Soviet Union a naval superpower. The history of the airfoil boat construction, checkouts and its rebirth today is the theme of The Caspian Sea Monster documentary.
