If there’s one thing I love more than hovercraft, it’s ground-effect aircraft. Why not have both? Shockingly, this crossover contraption is not from Russia, the motherland of strange transportation solutions to questions only a Soviet bureaucrat could have asked (ekranoplan anyone?), it’s from New Zealand. And you thought they were just good for comedic musical troupes and yeast extract spreads.
We say, hats off to Rudy
He-Man Heeman. $15,000, 60 MPH capable, and able to traverse land, sea, and sky (well, the optimal altitude is around 6 feet off the deck) … anything that gives inexpensive access to real-world thrills is ok in my book.
