Found this article http://www.subaviators.com/Portals/0/News/DIVER_JUNE_2009_Flying%20Subs.pdfthat discusses submersibles that fly underwater using dynamic lift. It also mentions submersible aircraft "Joseph Hardo’s ‘Submarine Flying Boat’ of 1922, or Longobardi’s 1918 submarine-cum-aircraft described elegantly as a “Combination Vehicle” It also shows some unreadable thumbnails of the patent sketches. While doing an internet search on Longobardi he also developed concepts for the flying car. I think he was trying to develop Jules Verne's Terror from "Master of the World".

When reading a recent patent by Graham Hawkes http://www.freepatentsonline.com/7131389.pdfon submersibles it cites Ardo in 1922 not Hardo which I believe is incorrect.


Hi,

Edit: I've moved Hesham's post here to the Naval Section, as it actually is a submarine, not an aircraft
If someone has a more appropriate title, just tell me ("Flying Fish " ? ;) )

ORIGINAL CAPTION: A company has created a personal submarine to allow owners to explore the ocean depths in luxury - for a cool £1 million. The DeepFlight Super Falcon Mark II is the ultimate in underwater travel and looks more like an aeroplane that your conventional sub. Its targeted at billionaires and travel companies while Virgin chief Richard Branson is the owner of one of the gadgets. The Super Falcon Mark II features two bubble-glass compartments and is 17ft long.
