Flying has always been the ideal of people from ancient times to the present. In ancient times, there was a history of allusions to the moon, while in the Western countries there was a story of Icarus fleeing out of Crete with wings. The car was introduced in 1887, and the airport was introduced in 1906, giving people the ability to run fast and fly higher. But after all, people have requirements from beginning to end. Usually, the independent innovation of high-tech is to reorganize two new technical materials that have already been perfected. The flying cars have always been the requirements of everyone.
In the mid-to-late period of the 1940s after the end of World War II, the comparison has already become the state of Europe in the scorched-earth area. At this time, the overall strength of the automobile industry must be the only one in the UK. It can be said that the world's first real-life flying car is the Model 118 released by Convair Cornwall in 1947.
As an independent car, all the functions are not easy to reduce, and part of the aeronautical driving force is a set of wings and propeller aircraft connected to the trunk of the car. In summary, it means that a drone is "backed up". "The car is on the trunk of the car. This car only produced a test type. In the original aviation experiment, it was forced to drop due to the consumption of light. It was always a four-axis aircraft with high efficiency and low credibility. There is no trend again.
There will be another well-established product in the future, that is to say, the flying car designed by Moulton Taylor, although the design looks simpler, is actually more technical. Taylor himself is also mainly engaged in flight technology experience, and the first search for flying cars can be traced back to the 30th era, the first commodity was introduced in 1949.
The car that Taylor "Taylor" released was immediately named for Aerocar, the "air vehicle." In today's eyes, the part of the car is very much like an old scooter. The old saying that this thing does not look like the first thing that fits the airline's pneumatic design. If you take it and the general airport than the ability to coordinate must also be relatively poor, perhaps only to ensure close-to-point point-to-point direct flights, but imagine the general airport to do the skills to turn around may not work.
But at least the Taylor Aerocar, which was released in the late 1940s, can fly in the sky for a longer period of time, and can be used in a three-kilometer-high aspect ratio. Although the speed of flying is not even two hundred kilometers, it may be slower. The immediate stall went down, which is not as fast as some of the chemical-coated biplanes. But it is also a very convenient place for independent innovation, such as the wings of cocoa folding, which can be dragged in the car and everything is normal, and it is very convenient to disassemble.
Molton Taylor decided to develop the flying car products again. This kind of diligence has come to the 1960s. The main products have been developed for several generations, including the model specifications with a smoother final design, but only the final change. It is an exhibit of the History Museum.
