How Does A Hang Glider Stay In The Air?

Get Some Air

Mankind’s desire to fly stretches all the way back to several hundred years BC, and the journey to where we are today was not easy.

How A Hovercraft Works


Hovercraft is an Air Cushion Vehicle (ACV) which is capable of traveling 0n land, water, mud, and ice. Sir Christopher Cockerell invented the hovercraft vehicle in 1955 and in 1959 the first hovercraft S.N1 floated. Hovercrafts are very popular among military people because these hybrid vessels can take 60-65 tonnes of the load which helps to transport troops, tanks, and military supplies and they can access areas which other vehicles cannot.

The Mystery Citroen

The ‘Mystery Citroen’mcit

An amphibious car of real historical and engineering importance.

Rescued from a field in North Wales, this vehicle had been completely stripped of almost every working component other than partial running gear and remnants of a hydropneumatic suspension system from a Citroen ‘DS’.

Unfortunately, the removed parts were lost. It is believed to be the only ever incorporation of this unique suspension system into an amphibian. It would have been used to achieve a high ground clearance when on land and a wheel retracting wheel system when on the water for greater speed.…



Scuba divers and snorkelers know the difficulties that are in deep seas. The pressure of water in especially deep below the surface is six times higher than the pressure at the surface. Submarines are undersea vessels that are designed to host people and other things below the water surface in deep seas. Subs are mostly used by marine soldiers for security purposes. Aquatic life is also very important where scientific research is done. Therefore submarines are also used as research vessels by scientists to carry studies under water.…
