    Default Next generation F1 craft

    Is this the way forward for F1



    China developing WIGE aircraft



    A wing-in-ground-effect aircraft is under development at Shanghai based-Tongji University, according to Chinese media. With a design payload of 4,000kg (8,800lb), top speed of 162kt (300km/h) and maximum altitude of 5m (16ft), the aircraft is claimed to consume half to two-thirds of the fuel of an "ordinary aircraft" while carrying "more weight" and being up to six times faster than an ocean-going ship. The report says further development could lead to a 50-seat prototype by 2013, with future versions able to carry up to 400,000kg by 2017.



    Competitors watch out!!!



    Happy dreams Barry Staples

    SEOUL: South Korea said on Thursday it planned to develop a ‘flying ship’ capable of carrying 100 tons of cargo at a cruising speed of up to 300 kms per hour. The 300-ton ‘wing-in-ground’ (WIG) craft is expected to be built by 2012 and cruise at 250 to 300 kms per hour, government policy-makers at a science ministers’ meeting said.
