From Russia With ... MOVE!!!


Apparently the ship's crew lost their bearings.
Or, as it's the Russian Navy, they were using their recently refurbished vodka bearings.

Whatever the case, thinking that they were driving on to a beach belonging to a naval base, they decided to make beach goers skeedaddle by driving their 550 ton hovercraft right up on shore. They'll move...


According to witnesses, the naval base is actually some distance away and this beach is frequently populated with sun-seeking civilians. Allegedly the base was in Khmelevka, several miles from the beach in Mechnikovo, near Kaliningrad on the Baltic Sea.

This is not a wee little boat. It carries 400 men plus lots of cases of vodka equipment. It reaches speeds of 68 mph.

I'm sure all of those beach-goers could sue the Russian Government (hahahaha).

WoFat - I'm wondering if they were chasing someone on the beach. Someone carrying olives and vermouth perhaps?
