George Jetson Spotted On Google Earth
In the third grade the Weekly Reader rounded our eyes to tales of the coming millennium. By 2000, Moller would have flying cars off the ground and into traffic-regulated skies. You could have guessed that a satellite image captured by a Google Earth user had fulfilled that prophecy. But the flying car in the photo published in Britain’s The Register looks nothing like what’s on Moller’s website.
If it is a flying carthe picture’s a bit fuzzy since the object in question appears to only be a few yards off the ground.
Now somewhere in Australia, they’ve found a hovering 4-door sedan doing about 80 knots. But you have to ask, “Who wants a flying car that looks like a Crown Victoria?”
The Moller Skycar looks a bit more like a tail-kickin’ flying car should.
