Flying car getting close to reality

Sorry about the long URL but this is what's on MSN/SYmpatico.

It's the Terrfugia Transition.

Not the prettiest car or the prettiest airplane, but has completed 28 flights, none outside of the airport property and vicinity. Not sure how aerobatic is it either.

I still liked the Honda civic conversion from the James Bond movies (the one in Hong Kong with the Louisiana Sherrif from "Live and Let Die"). That one almost worked except that the clips that held the car unto the wing/motor unit tended to spontaneously fatigue with the expected very bad results.
