Hovercraft Story

Details

Motoring journalist Ashley Hollebone reveals for the first time the full story behind the hovercraft, a wonderful British invention that was created in a back shed from a rusty baked bean tin and an old hair dryer - simple but remarkable nonetheless! The hovercraft has a multitude of uses across numerous arenas, including leisure cruising and Formula 1 racing; it has modernised travel and saved many lives -boasting zero fatalities in accidents - yet despite all this little has been written about this most humble craft. This colourful book decisively redresses the balance and with a detailed potted history and photographs and diagrams comprehensively reveals the story behind the hovercraft.
