Hello; The Aquarama sat in a slip in West Windsor, Ontario, Canada for a long time before it was sold to the company in Buffalo. I used to drive by the slip it was in for years. It sat there so long the anchor chain had to be excavated from beneath the soil it was laid on when first left here. It sailed the Great Lakes for many years on lake excursions from the Detroit River between Windsor, Ontario and Detroit, Michigan. The Ekranoplan wasn't just "a plane that could take off on land and water" - that's just an amphibious plane (like the PBY Catalina). "Ground effect" is where the wings' lift is greatly increased by closeness to the ground (or water). It only needed tiny wings to "float" near the surface with high efficiency and speed. Never caught on though. Have you ever parked your car, walked away from it, and struggled to find it later because you've forgotten where you parked? We expect you have - almost everyone does it at some point! Usually, though, you'll find your car again after a brief search. Your vehicle generally doesn't end up stuck in the same place for the next twenty or thirty years. We can't say the same for the vehicles you're about to see in this video. They're pretty unique machines, and they've been abandoned in unique circumstances, too!
