It's a speed boat, isn't it ? ;)
 
It's from a period when Flight had a supplement called Air Cushion Vehicles so it's a surface effect vehicle not an aircraft. Look at the top of the page...

More correctly described as WIG -
wing in ground effect - similar to Russian Caspian monster
and others such like?
