In an interview with Discovery aired on the Planes That Never Flew episode about the WS-125, George Kerevan mentioned that the Soviet Union came up with a proposal for a nuclear-powered flying boat weighing 1,000 tons. The 1,000 ton flying boat had a wingspan over over 420 feet and four turbroprops delivering an excessive amount of shaftpower, and was intended to carry 1,000 passengers and a maximum load of 100 tons at 1,000 km/h (http://www.megazone.org/ANP/tech.shtml). Does anyone have drawings of this monster flying boat?

There was a topic for Bartini,

please use the search before open a new oe;

The thread that I started talks about 1950 design for the 1,000 passenger, 1,000 ton nuclear flying boat. I didn't know that the AL-40 was already discussed in the Bartini projects thread, so I was going to request drawings of the 1,000 ton nuclear powered passenger flying boat (the project is also discussed in the 1960 book "Soviet Nuclear Propulsion" by Roman G. Perelman).
