Default Ekranoplanes Plane Or Boat?

The Russian Ekranoplanes have always fascinated me. I've seen lots of photos of them, some on Airliners.net, but never have seen video of them flying. I found this documentary about the Ekranoplanes on YouTube. It must have been a blast to fly 220 MPH, 3 feet above the water.
