This 118-foot flying yacht makes ekranoplan the Coolest-Gadgets Word of the Day

by Mark R

This particular vehicle may look futuristic, but this concept vehicle is actually based on vehicles of the past rather than the future. This is an ekranoplan (pronounced ee-cran-o-plan not ee-cran-o-plane) which is a sea-based vehicle that can move at extraordinarily fast speeds. You can see one after the jump on video.
