Wadsworth Flying Fish
 
Wads-FlyFish
 
In 1911, Detroit industrialist and boat tycoon Frederick Elliott Wadsworth built a hydro-aeroplane named the Flying Fish which debuted at the New York Boat Show. The vehicle was designed to skim on top of the water at speeds of up to 65 mph, with the ‘skipper-pilot’ seated in a wicker chair at the rear of its canoe-like hull. The Flying Fish was successfully tested on the ice of Lake St. Clair but no further development occurred.
