Sunday Aircraft Cheesecake (M-50 Bounder)

Another Russian plane this week, the Myasischev M-50 Bounder:

According to the FAS link above, little is known about this plane's performance, though one referenced commenter noted that the M-50 was "an outstanding failure which revealed an embarassing lack of understanding of the problems of high-speed flight."

(Be sure to check out the other exhibits at AXLs Plane Gallery, where I found these images).
