The Hovercraft : Photographs from the Archives of the World's Only Hovercraft Museum

de (Auteur)

Description - Lee-on-the-Solent is synonymous with planes and seaplanes, but it is also the home of another, slightly more unusual vehicle - the hovercraft.

After the first cross-channel crossing by a hovercraft in 1959, there was a revolution in design and development. Within a decade, the mighty SRN4, capable of carrying 400 passengers and sixty cars across the English Channel in less than forty minutes, had arrived.
As the commercial hovercraft thrived, the military also continued to innovate; the British Interservice Hovercraft (Trials) Unit (IHTU) being established in 1961.

Utilising the archive of the world's only hovercraft museum, based in Lee-on-the Solent and boasting more than seventy historic craft, Jim Gray uses a wealth of rare and unpublished images to explore the importance and impact of the hovercraft, offering a fascinating glimpse into a vehicle that has captivated the imagination of the public for more than fifty years.

Hovercraft - The Story of a Very British Invention

de (Auteur)

Description - One senses that author Arthur Ord-Hume feels a kindred spirit with Sir Christopher Cockerell, inventor of the hovercraft, when he describes it as a very British invention meaning, as he woefully describes it, that its inventor was largely ignored in his lifetime and his invention as almost forgotten.

The whole story has a familiar ring to it with the product going to be the future of our transport needs to a curiosity used for fun or for such specialised uses they are mainly out of the public eye.

Arthur writes engagingly and tells the stories of the technical development alongside the human ones, but this is a book that mainly looks back at the heyday of the hovercraft and as such should bring back memories for those of a certain age.

The Hovercraft - A History

de (Auteur)

Description - The hovercraft was first created in 1959, when Sir Christopher Cockerell came up with a prototype that crossed the English Channel. The SRN-1, the first ever hovercraft, is now proudly housed by the Science Museum and this very British invention enjoys an active role in many arenas, from travel, leisure cruising and racing to lifesaving and transporting goods.

This detailed book delves into the history of the hovercraft, from the early days of its development through to the commercial and military applications of the craft. It looks into the exciting world of hovercraft leisure, cruising and racing from amateur to Formula 1, and also explores the important role the hovercraft plays in rescues whether on water or delivering aid around the word in places that helicopters can't reach. Finally, it details the types of hovercraft in use today, and what the future holds.
