Virgin CEO Richard Branson has unveiled Necker Nymph, a new $660,287 underwater plane that “can dive to depths of up to 130ft; Richard hopes to one day explore depths of 35,000ft.” Similar to fighter jets, the Necker is piloted via a joystick and uses downward lift from its wings to fly downwards.

Sir Richard plans to lend the Nymph out to visitors of his luxury hideaway, Necker Island. Gliding like an aeroplane through the water it can carry a pilot and two visitors on a two-hour trip.
