    Default Military hovercraft on the Thames

    And they manage to crash it! I guess changing segments on this isn't quite as easy as most of ours.

    Do they have "keel hauling" for hovercraft?

    Leaping to the pilots defence there are some very difficult wave patterns under those bridges. The tide race plus wash from other boats bounces off different bridge piers, river walls etc and you get very confused water. It's one reason we stopped racing in central London.
