The Caspian Sea Monster

In August of 1967 an American spy satellite took sensational photographs. A huge unknown machine that looked like an aircraft, some 100 metres long and about 500 tons in weight, was flying over the Caspian Sea waters at more than 500 kilometres per hour. Pentagon analysts called this object “the Caspian sea monster”. It was constructed to make the Soviet Union a naval superpower.
