Saunders-Roe SRN-6 Hovercraft In Action & Showing Its Versatility On Streets Of Monte Carlo 1966
The Saunders-Roe (later British Hovercraft Corporation) SR-N6 hovercraft incorporated several features that resulted in the type becoming one of most produced and commercially successful hovercraft designs in the world.
The SR.N6 has the distinction of being the first production hovercraft to enter commercial service. In comparison to the SR.N5, the SR.N6 was stretched in length, providing more than double the seating capacity. Some models of the craft were stretched further, enabling an even greater capacity.
Experience gained in the development of the SR.N6 has been attributed as heavily contributing towards the design and production of the largest civil hovercraft to be ever produced, the SR.N4. Several major design features of the SR.N6 appeared on both the SR.N4 and further hovercraft designs by Saunders-Roe and its successor, the British Hovercraft Corporation.
From the film Murderers' Row, a 1966 American comedy spy-fi film starring Dean Martin as Matt Helm. It is the second of four films in the Matt Helm series, and is very loosely based upon the 1962 spy novel Murderers' Row by Donald Hamilton.
Ann-Margret and Karl Malden co-star in this sequel to The Silencers.
