Blohm  Voss BV 238 V1.  German sources claim that the BV 238 V1 was discovered by the RAF between 23 April and 26 April 1945. The Allies were concerned that Hitler could use it to escape to South America, and so an attack followed shortly afterwards. The aircraft was attacked by Hawker Typhoons, or Hawker Tempests. Their strafing set the engines alight, and the aircraft burnt and sank with only part of a wing remaining above the surface.

It flies just over the water because of ground effect. So it can haul a heavy load very efficiently compared to getting it up to altitude. Or floating.
