As many people from the 'old days' will remember Dick Tracy had an arc about a 'Moon Maiden' and Flying platforms.
I've looked into them and wondered if the Mil ever developed one that was worthy. In fact I see one called the VZ-1 Flying Platform that just looks like a mockup with a suspension cable airbrushed out (i.e. no sign of propulsion/fuel, a big fan).
To me, if we really had unusual propulsion among the black projects, one that would be really cool would be a one man flying platform. Of course we've all seen the jet pack that 007 flies in Thunderball, but those were only short hops.
That being said, not much to discuss but here's a cool page that covers it:
Hope this is entertaining.
