A few pictures from a recent trip to Portsmouth in the UK where there is (as I understand) the only operating passenger hovercraft service in the world.

It takes passengers prom Southsea (Portsmouth) over to the Ryde on the Isle of Wight.

Hovercraft were very exciting in the ’70s when I was growing up and were often shown as being the future of travel.  I wanted to build one myself!  Seems that their lifespan was not as expected and they are rare things to see.
