Flight in a WIG

I went for a fly in one of these yesterday. it is a WIG, Wing in Ground Effect machine.
 
They utilise the same principle as gulls when they fly close to the water, whereby the downward wing angle pressurises the air underneath and gets a lot of lift off the water.
 
The fly about 5m above the water at around 80 knots and very economically.
 
Impressive craft for sure!

    Unfortunately the craft price are too high for this size and commecial operation. A price between 4-5 million US$ is too high.
