Kalinin K-7
(Russian: Калинин К-7) was a heavy experimental aircraft designed and tested in theSoviet Unionin the early 1930s. K-7 was of unusual configuration withtwin boomsand large underwing pods housing fixedlanding gear  andmachine gun turrets. In the passenger version, seats were arranged inside the 2.3meter (7 ft7 in
) thick wings. The airframe was welded from
 chrome-molybdenum steel. The original designcalled for sixengines in the wing leading edge but when the projected loaded weight was exceeded, two more engines were added to the trailing edges of each wing, one right and one left of the central passenger pod.
However V.Nemecek states in his book "The History of Soviet Aircraft from 1918" that there was only one further pusher engine added—this agrees with the specification supplied below.K-7 first flew on 11 August 1933. Then on 21 November 1933 the aircraft crashed due to structural failure of one of the tail booms, killing 14 people aboard and one on the ground.
