Hovercraft landing at Ryde, Isle of Wight - 1980
Hovercraft landing at Ryde, Isle of Wight - 1980
This is a historic shot taken in 1980 showing the type of Hovercraft which operated at that time. I understand there is still a Hovercraft service from Southsea to Ryde on the Isle of Wight, but the Hovercraft look slightly different from this one. The landing area is now nearer to the Pier. I believe the landing area in this image is close to where the ice rink is now.
