31 Levitating Vehicles From the Dawn of the Hovercraft



A handful of these are new to me, and given my propensity for finding rarely seen hovercraft, color me impressed by this collection.

The skirtless craft are of special interest, because we just don't see these attempted anymore.

It is potentially the world’s first hovercraft. As the 1940s approached and war across Europe appeared more imminent, Levkov was keen on finding military applications for hovercraft.[/QUOTE]
