Um DUKW voador...

 

"Colonel Frank Speir, one of the fathers of the Army's DUKW, thought that foils could increase the sea speed of this vehicle. He and Rod Stephens, Jr. of Sparkman and Stephens visited us in Miami, participated in one of our HALOBATES sea trials, and initiated the contracting process to get a DUKW flying on foils. This was to be a MSC project, but — since the Army foresaw a production contract for DUKWs on foils and since these were wheeled vehicles for land operations —we had to accept the Lycoming Division of AVCO as the prime contractor. They had no hydrofoil experience, so the initial design, conversion, and sea trials became MSC's responsibility."
