Inside Mighty Machines: EPISODE 3

Hovercraft

A futuristic new mode of transportation, part plane, part boat, and part helicopter, the launch of the hovercraft in 1969 was unlike anything ever seen. After 31 years of service and a collective 2.5 million miles back and forth across the English Channel, they were decommissioned. As a salvage team prepares to take one apart to sell whatever they can for recycling, former NASA engineer Chad Zdenek examines the engineering genius involved in making the hovercraft a giant of its time.
