It’s a bird! It’s a plane! It’s a car! It’s the Transition! Them wacky guys (MIT grads and pilots, a winning combination of intellect and crazy) at Terrafugia have designed, built and now flown the Terrafugia Transition, what is described as a “roadable aircraft.” The transition can fold up it’s wings and drive down the road at freeway speeds. How cool is that?
On the 5th of March, the Transition took to the air for the fist time and is now undergoing flight (and road) testing.
I can hardly wait to see one of these pull off the road, lower the wings and, take off. Naturally from an approved airfield, we pilots are responsible folk.
You can get all the info, more photos and a couple of vids at the Terrafugia web site.
P.S. Price tag? A bit less then what I paid for my house. YIKES!
