Nice video the first reference to the hovercraft in historical records was in 1716 by Swedish scientist Emanuel Swedenborg.In 1915 Austrian Dagobert Muller built the worlds first air cushion vehicle,shaped like a section of a large aircraft wing propelled by four aero engines and the fifth at the front blowing air under the vehicle, this brought great interest and further development by the USSR/Russia,the United States,Canada and other countries to further develop and produce the hovercraft.
