Not only a bit of info on the Aérotrain program (in particular the penultimate Aerotrain 180 HV) including some footage, but also mentions some of the competing & spinoff designs overseas, especially the RTV 31 [sometimes written down as RTV-31] prototype for the Tracked Hovercraft program, and the Rohr Urban Tracked Air-Cushion Vehicle (UTACV).
