  1. Finally someone is doing something useful with all that research the Russians did on ground effect (google ekranoplan for more on that ;)). Not quite a plane but certainly not a boat or jetski.
    Still a concept at the moment but intended to be powered by two Mazda rotaries giving it a maximum speed of 100kph at no more than 1.5 metres above sea level - it's steered using bars and shifting bodyweight just like a bike :cool:. Expected price is around 50 grand US - pricey but certainly not out of reach (hopefully they might be available for rental someday :grin:).
