Giant airplanes

It’s fun to see artists renderings of what the future of aviation would look like, this 1890’s picture is surreal, right out of Jules Verne:

An 1890's vison of the future of aviation

This web page has a great list of giant concept aircraft, monster airplanes that never got off of the ground. I like this one, a flying 5 star hotel:

It has a giant bar and lounge and I love the windows on the leading edge of the wings:

And the Russian commies built some ridiculous huge aircraft, this one, the Rusky K7 giant airplane.

This looks severely underpowered like the Spruce Goose, I'm suprised that it could fly . . .
