Hmm... It's not a submarine that can fly though, it is an aircraft that can plunge into water, shedding its flying parts in the process. I think the Australian team that produced the Ikara could claim prior art:

Raven claims prior art.

Gerry Anderson claims priority. SHADO claims national security breach.

I can neither confirm nor deny the existence of a helicopter version.
