HOVERCRAFT - The Story of a Very British Invention


The brilliance of the Hovercraft principle was recognised almost as soon as it was invented by Sir Sydney Cockerell, although its development into a reliable and steerable machine took some time.

The first 34 pages of this book succinctly describe the development and history of the breed, and are followed by 64 pages of B&W photographs, largely two to a page, of all the major Hovercraft up to an including the giant SR.N4 series used on car-carrying cross-Channel service for many years.

A lot of interesting information and pictures. A4 format paperback.
