Flying Car That Doesn't Fly Sells For Over $130,000
This week, eBay saw the sale of a truly unique item, Boeing's Sky Commuter concept. The 400-pound car is a one-of-a-kind remnant of Boeing's 1980s program that was chasing the Holy Grail of the flying car. The Sky Commuter reportedly crashed before it got ten feet off the ground, so of the three prototypes, just the one used for PR purposes survived. It sold for $131,700 on eBay. The winning bidder has said the Sky Commuter will go to a museum. The article from Aero-News Network also references the great red hope of flying cars, the Moller Sky Car, and quotes the seller of the Sky Commuter as saying that the Moller Sky Car project was "recently abandoned after decades of hype." Is this true? The Moller website still seems active.
