Re: ENTER- Misc. Av. Contest: A Transport of Delight

Ok, can't stay long this week so I'm just popping in to drop a "ground effect vehicle" into the contest; I give you The Monster from the Caspian Sea, The Ekranoplan.





Sure, it was developed for the military and *dang* I did it again didn't I? -the version in the avatar is clearly a militarized version -or did soviet civilian transports carry missiles?

Ok, gove me some more hours (a day?) and I'll find a nice image of a people-transport Ekranoplan... like the one in the video...

PAL-V, a fully "convertible" hybrid between a two-seated-motorcycle/car and a gyrocopter (an aircraft that looks like a helicopter but behaves like an airplane).

Essentially, the closest we have to a personal flying car/drivable aircraft.

Re: ENTER- Misc. Av. Contest: A Transport of Delight

would one that got planned and that was built as a model but never as an actual vehicle count as fictional?

Hmmm. If it was a full size working prototype I'd say it would qualify, but just a model, no.

Re: ENTER- Misc. Av. Contest: A Transport of Delight

ah, a pity. I had hoped I could use one of DaVinci's inventions.

But here comes a German means of transport who's descendant I employ on an almost daily base
