Yeah, it's the Caspian sea Monster! - an Ekranoplan, very fast boat/ aeroplane that uses a physical effect called "ground effect".

There have been many trials of these machines, but I don't think that they've ever really been used in any service. I assume that they must have some critical flaws, maybe the need very still water?
