No longer a subject of science fiction, a car that can fly like a regular aeroplane, but then land, fold up its wings and drive away debuted in Boston this week.

As a car it can drive on roads at 105km per hour and achieve up to 30 miles per gallon. In the air it cruises at 185km an hour with its 100 horsepower engine. The plane has 4 wheels, an uncommon feature on general aviation aircraft, a safety cage and crumple zone, side impact protection and a parachute that will lower the plane to the ground in case of mid-air engine failure.
