More About This episode

Anyone stuck in a traffic jam has had the same wish...to own a car that can lift off of the ground and zoom ahead of the pack. For decades, inventors and engineers have attempted to make that dream a reality, and they're closer than you think. Join us as we examine flying car designs of the past and present: the good, the bad, and the bizarre. See how modern technology has brought us closer than ever to putting cars in the air and flying machines in every garage.
