For more than a century, science fiction writers have been tormenting us with visions of flying machines that could be driven on roads as well as in air. Now a Massachusetts-based company named Terrafugia has designed a flying car, that has foldable wings which retracts when it is on the road.
It has a wingspan of 26 feet that tucks in and out with the push of a button, altering between a flying machine and a car within 30 seconds. With a full tank, the car can fly for 460 miles at the speed of 110 miles per hour. It is expected to be sold for $279,000 and about 100 of the aircraft/car have already been booked.
