    The Germans or Soviets did a preliminary design for a submarine, plane in WWII, saw it on a recent TV show, therefore it must be true. Better yet our own Military cast about for it also, see:

    http://www.waterufo.net/flyingsubs/NavyFlyingSubHtml1.htm

    "a true flying submarine, offers more promise than either of the above methods. It could fly from a favorable location to its destination at minimum altitude to avoid detection by radar. At the completion of its underwater mission it could travel as a submersible to a location best suited for takeoff, become airborne and return to base"

    Don't know how, one is trying to keep extreme pressure outside, & the other is trying to keep extreme relative pressure in.... Try to breathe out and in at the same time.??? I think the breathing trick would be easier:D:D:D

    Wow, is that the prototype??? But it seems on the illustration, that "FANTASTIC FLYING SUB" is using a sort of hydro-foil for underwater and when it gets up in the atmosphere, it vacuums air.

    How about this one?
    It looks like a spaceship(Flying Sub) to me...:p :p :p

    what if, from the reference of sir jehar's popular mechanics fantastic flying sub is applied to this vessel...(not the wings, it will ruined her beauty)

    oh boy, I remember an animation that looks like with this one, the name of the vessel on the animation was "NAUTILUS"...and the skippers name is Capt. Nemo. Then, on the further lasts episode of the animation the flying sub, hasten above the earth to pursuit the enemy and prevent blasting the earth with a some sort of energy coming from the mystical blue stone.... :D :D :D

    Not a classic, beauty, but possibly the coolest megayacht in recent years. Sort of a super Wally.

    Kilbil - All in the eyes of the beholder - my personal taste relates to how I envisage I would use the boat - That pic to me looks like a very confused gin-palace... - maybe it should be under the water:D:D:D

    Don't "sir" me, apart from a predilection to occasional pontificating, mas will do or any other degenerative nickname that seems to fit the occasion:D:D

    The ideal beauty for a boat would be "human female" lightly clad (in nothing) but as in the boat itself, I am partial to multihulls - the designs of John Hitch, Kanga Bartles, Robin Chamberlin and Bob Oram come to mind, with the original philosophy of Bertram - 'come back from fishing, hose it down and finish'.....:D:D - - all to much plush cushions, polished brass, scrubbed teak, high gloss varnished rails and superfluous trash on modern "luxury boats" - for what?...

    Charlie, I give you that boat, knowing it will go to someone who can appreciate it???

    I see what you mean Mas (no more "sir" addresses:D :D :D ) for the ideal beauty of a boat would be likely "human female" but a "goddess"...:D :D :D
    Now i sense your taste which is your typical to multihulls.

    I get over to Miami and Fort Lauderdale occasionally on business, try to swing by the mega marinas. I saw Skat, which looks a bit like a warship with her sleek lines and gray paint. Very cool, so different from the white wedding cakes floating all around. A very beautiful integration of classic and modern lines, IMHO, was the Palmer Johnson beauty, La Baronessa (now named Frequency - I like La Baronessa better). I spent an hour or so going over her when she was moored in Miami Beach a year after she was launched. Stunningly beautiful. Next time I have $80 million with no plans for it, I might just buy her and give her back her original name.

    Don't anyone hold your breath, please. I'll give you all plenty of notice before I do it. :D :D

    Pretty boat, but sadly, Charlie - not really my style - I may use pretenshiuos words but - I like things a little simpler... Thanks...

    I love it, could use some retractable hydrofoils and a couple of obsevation bubbles. I like the clean look, looks like it's begging to take on a 100 foot high Rouge Wave just to prove it's self.;)

    Me, too, and simple things are more in line with the budget these days.

    How to do it

    It is feasible with existing technology. But to generate the thrust required for a vehicle that heavy to go from the surface into space you'd need an Orion nuclear pulse propulsion system.
