There is a fantastic story that dates from the turn of the century. Back then aviation pioneer Alberto Santos-Dumont would parade his new fangled Airship by hovering at roof level along the boulevards of Paris.
Then when he’d utterly freaked the passing Parisians out he would tie the ship up and pop into his favourite restaurant for lunch.
Hopefully one day we will all be floating roof level above the streets of cities in our personal airships. Until then though here is a selection of various other modes of transport – most of which are for sale – which are utterly bizarre, but would be huge amounts of fun.
Ok, so this little stocking filler costs around 80,000 Euros - and that is for the cheapest model. What you get for your cash is an amazing jet powered flying machine that can propel you as high as 15 metres and as quick as a very scary 75Kmh. It sounds like a ridiculous amount of fun. Jetlev
