    Reminds me of that gigantic ground effect plane the Russians built in the 80's. Ekranoplan was it?
    Of all the paths you take in life - make sure a few of them are dirt.

      Build one with a lawnmower motor. There's a bunch on youtube.
      Life is short. Be a do'er and not a shoulda done'er.

        That is a wing in ground effect (WIG) vehicle. Although it does look like it has a lift fan forward and a small skirt for slower speeds when that giant pusher fan isn't up to full thrust.

          I use to have a Scat hoover craft a few years ago..
          I did some work to it and got it running 80 mph
          with no wind... if I would have had a nice tail
          wind it might have hit 100 but then you still
          need to go back up wind... they are a riot to
          run... your basically out of control and when you
          want to stop you spin it 180 and stand on the throttle
