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.

The dutiful Register readership sends loads of “black helicopter” Google Earth images for examination. They’ve found anything (and anyone) from Jesus to swastika-shaped buildings.

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.
