I am reading an article about Ekranoplans (wing in ground effect). A
project is mentioned, which is sponsored by the Us congress. The task is
a feasibility study of a 5000t Wing in ground effect, for
transcontinental routes. Speed up to 460 mph and 1300+ tonnes of cargo.
Two Organisations are involved:
ARPA: advanced research projects agency
WTEC wingship technology evaluation committee.

Does anybody know the outcome of this study or has information about it
or the two organisations (websites, address, fax) Thanx Thomas
