That’s the place - Brough.
The thing skimming the sea - whatever it’s Mark No is a Russian invention using ’ground effect’. There was a great documentary on TV a few years back which was entitled ’The Black Sea Monster’ if I remember rightly.
Naturally they developed them for warfare, some with banks of rockets, some for troop carrrying but the concept is brilliant. But for a cock-up I’d have been in the RAF instead of the Army for my National Service so I can declare my interest in aircraft as legitimate.
My hobby used to be model aircraft which was how I learned about Ground Effect way back in the forties. That’s the 1940s - not the 1840s.
