A longer version, with other links in the frame.








I know many of think this concept is not such a good idea, the reality is that it is being seriously considered as a way of decongesting the roads!


Thx Smurfy!

Popular Science and Popular Mechanics run articles on flying cars every so often. They were a hot ticket in the 50's and 60's. We have them already, anyway, they are called "airplanes."



I remember seeing the front covers of some of the magazines from the early 1900's. The concept of flying ships was taken quite literally - an oarship floating several hundred feet off the ground, suspended by a gas balloon. But from the viewpoint of a young engineer, that was what the future in 50 years was going to be; zeppelins, rockets, steel hull aircraft.
