The United States Navy's newest hydrofoil, the PGH-2 gunboat Tucumcari, "flies" over the water at 40 knots on one of its first test runs near Seattle, Washington. The hydrofoil was designed and built by The Boeing Company and may be the fore?runner of a fleet of swift, special-mission Navy craft. The propellerless hydro?foil is the largest water-jet propelled craft operating in the world.
