I have read allot of Google links about a satellite photo of a flying car that was captured over a small area of land in a park in Perth Australia.the photo shows a shape that matches that of a car in Google maps.the vehicle in question appears to be hovering off the ground casting a shadow.another image of a flying car appears on Google maps shortly after the first flying car photo but in a different area in the same park.could the Australians have a flying car that work's like the flying cars from those futuristic Hollywood movies?the area of this sighting has been investigated and there is no evidence to say this was a mounted prop that is maid to look like a levitating car.

Is this it?

Source: www.dailytelegraph.com.au...


THE Terrafugia Transition, a light aircraft that can convert into a road-legal automobile, is to go into production after being given a special weight exemption by the US Federal Aviation Administration.
The Transition was designed as a "light sport" aircraft, the smallest kind of private aeroplane allowed under FAA classification, with a maximum weight of 1,320lb, reports The Register.

But the manufacturers found it impossible to fit the safety features - airbags, crumple zones and roll cage, for instance - that are required for road vehicles into that weight.

Uniquely, however, the FAA has granted the Transition an exemption - allowing it to be classified as a light sport aircraft despite being 120lb over the limit.

Light sport aircraft licences require just 20 hours' flying time, making them much easier to obtain than full private licences.

The two-seater Transition can use its front-wheel drive on roads at ordinary highway speeds, with wings folded, at 12.75km per litre. Once it has arrived at a suitable take-off spot - an airport, or adequately sized piece of flat private land - it can fold down the wings, engage its rear-facing propellor, and take off. The folding wings are electrically powered.

Its cruising speed in the air is 185kmh, 115mph, it has a range of 740km, and it can carry 200kg. It requires a 0.5kg-long runway to take off and can fit in a standard garage

yea i read about the new terrafugia.
cool car/airplane.but what i saw was very different.it seems to use some form of anti gravity levitation technology.

Hmmm... I googled it and then I had a sneaking suspicion that I knew where a "flying car" was close to where I live. Sure enough here it is, In Charlestown, Indiana.



Although it looks similiar to to the Australia ones, The one I posted has a very simple explanation.




I dont know if these are what you are seeing in Australia, but as soon as a saw the photos, I immediately thought about this.

Upon further inspection of the Australian "flying car", I am pretty sure it is not a car on a post, like the one I posted above. The current google earth view doesn't show it, and neither does the street view. I have no idea why it looks like that.


the photo in question

good work!i was actually reading about another possible explanation for this.giant car balloons!yes they have them.they are full sized replicas of cars with a balloon flotation system underneath.you can see this on you tube.some dude got one and rigged some small R.C.aircraft rotors on it to give it the effect of flying.it would appear as a flying car on a satellite.just a thought....

im not 100% on the balloon car thing,but its the best explanation i can think of.there's still a slim chance this could be a flying car that someone in Perth Australia decided to build in their home laboratory/garage.who knows.i looked into it and there wasn't much info on someone flying a car balloon out there.its an explanation but it is not a conclusive one yet.

Nah it's not a water tank, it's two cars parked next to each other, ones dark and looks like a shadow.

The same thing can be seen in the car park above, there's three maybe four dark cars that look like shadows too.

why do you think i want a flying car?!being in traffic waists fuel.my ideal flying car would be like the Delorean from back to The Future part 2 with the hover conversion system they got from the year 2015.that would be fun to fly.who ever is working on this Australian flying car is on the right track towards something like that!
