|After owning a mobile phone company, an airline company, a Caribbean island and some luxury restaurants, billionaire Sir Richard Branson’s latest possession is an underwater plane dubbed the Necker Nymph. It can dive to depths of up to 130ft, Richard hopes to one day explore depths of 35,000ft, and it will cost Branson around 415,000 British pounds.
The Necker Nymph is is relatively small and can carry just three people, one pilot and two passengers.The luxury sub has fighter jet technology and is piloted with a joystick. While most subs use ballast to propel subs under the water, the Nymph uses downward 'lift' on the wings to fly down. It was designed and built by Graham Hawkes.
