davem: Alaxander Graham Bell HD-1 hydrofoil

"In 1911, Alaxander Graham Bell started testing the HD-1, a hydrofoil with short airfoils in addition to hydrofoils, to aid in lift. The craft reached 50 mph using an air propeller. Bell's plan for the technology was as an aid to sailing. He envisioned huge passenger hydrofoils sailing across the Atlantic without the need for an engine." http://www.aae.uiuc.edu/cetan/
