In the course of testing the the optimum flight altitude in WIG mode proved to be 4 to 14m. At that time the KM was the largest flying vehicle in the world. The KM performed as a testbed until it crashed due to pilot error in 1980. It proved valuable in evolving the scientific basis for the design, construction and testing of ekranoplans
