FLYING CARS — DISTANT FUTURE OR THE AUTOMOBILE OF TODAY?
The AeroMobil 4.0 is the flying car you might have dreamed of as a kid watching The Jetsons. In a matter of seconds, your car can transform into a plane, allowing you to take off from any surface with only a minimal amount of distance. As a vehicle, the AeroMobil fits in any standard parking space, uses regular gasoline, and can cruise in traffic with a top speed of 160 km/h, and a range of 4.21/100 km. As an airplane, the AeroMobil can hit airspeeds of up to 360 km/h, and has a range of 750 km. The leading flying car designer has garnered investors and hopefully production will be taking off soon.
The King’s 1962 Lockheed JetStar Plane Up for Auction
The plane may be missing an engine and a much-needed interior and exterior restoration, including updates in the cockpit, but it still contains the legacy of the great Elvis Presley. The current owner paid $430,000 for the King’s private plane in May 2017, outrageously below the estimated selling price of $2.5M. Although the plane is being auctioned “as is” by the online auction site IronPlanet, if restored to its former glory, the jet could sell for millions. The JetStar was one of Presley’s three private planes; the Lisa Marie and Hound Dog II are both owned by the Graceland Estate.
