Hovercraft - Ultimate Amphibious Machine
Subscribe to Naked Science - http://goo.gl/wpc2Q1 Every Wednesday we present a new video, so join us to see the truth laid bare... This machine breaks all the rules, it can penetrate some of the toughest terrains on earth, over land, over water, from the polar ice, to the rapids of the Amazon. This is the ultimate frictionless floating machine, the incredible hovercraft. A hovercraft, also known as an air-cushion vehicle or ACV, is a craft capable of travelling over land, water, mud or ice and other surfaces. Hovercraft are hybrid vessels operated by a pilot as an aircraft rather than a captain as a marine vessel. Hovercraft use blowers to produce a large volume of air below the hull that is slightly above atmospheric pressure. The pressure difference between the higher pressure air below the hull and lower pressure ambient air above it produces lift, which causes the hull to float above the running surface. For stability reasons, the air is typically blown through slots or holes around the outside of a disk or oval shaped platform, giving most hovercraft a characteristic rounded-rectangle shape. Typically this cushion is contained within a flexible "skirt", which allows the vehicle to travel over small obstructions without damage. The first practical design for hovercraft derived from a British invention in the 1950s to 1960s. They are now used throughout the world as specialised transports in disaster relief, coastguard, military and survey applications as well as for sport or passenger service. Very large versions have been used to transport hundreds of people and vehicles across the English Channel whilst others have military applications used to transport tanks, soldiers and large equipment in hostile environments and terrain.

US Navy LCAC (Hovercraft) Landing at Ocean Beach, San Francisco
tl;dr: skip to 4:45 for the landing. This is a long cut of the video I took of the San Francisco Fleet Week Medical Exchange Exercises that were performed on Ocean Beach. The main of attraction of which was the Navy Landing Craft Air Cushion (LCAC) landing on the beach (at 4:10 on the video) and the subsequent 180 degree turn and departing (10:00), however there were many other vessels, watercraft, vehicles, helicopters and other activity. Even a visit by the Mayor at (7:15). Here's how the event was described: Since 2010 San Francisco Fleet Week has been the venue for Bay Area First Responders and the U.S. Military to meet, train together and discuss the latest lessons learned from recent Humanitarian Assistance and Disaster Response operations and to develop processes and relationships between Federal, State and Local agencies. As part of 2012 Fleet Week activities, the San Francisco Fleet Week Association and the San Francisco Department of Emergency Management along with the U.S. Navy and Marine Corps team in action as a Navy Landing Craft Air Cushion (LCAC) operating from the USS Makin Island (LHD 8) and Marines from the 1st Marine Expeditionary Brigade deliver emergency supplies to Ocean Beach on October 3. This event is part of a multi-agency medical exercise. The Navy LCAC is an amphibious military vehicle that provides a high speed, over-the-horizon transport of cargo, vehicles, and personnel from Navy ships at sea to beaches and other landing sites. The Navy and Marine Corps used the LCAC to deliver equipment and supplies to Louisiana following Hurricane Katrina, to deliver fire suppression apparatus to Catalina Island, and to support disaster relief missions around the world. Following a major disaster in San Francisco that makes roads and bridges impassible, Navy LCACs and other amphibious vehicles and aircraft could deliver critical personnel, supplies, and equipment from Navy ships at sea. This exercise will demonstrate the humanitarian assistance and disaster relief capabilities of the Navy and Marine Corps team to deploy the LCAC to deliver emergency supplies, in this case to a Marine Corps Shock Trauma Platoon (STP). The STP, which will also be demonstrated at Ocean Beach, has the unique capability to establish a mobile surgery center within hours of a major disaster to provide medical attention to those in need.
