    Amazing back in 1944 they actually were for the fist time testing the ~Flying Jeep ~ at 400 feet !

    This video @ 1 min 40 seconds also has good images etc. Spoken in Russian, it has English subtitles, worth watching.

    Dear Mr. Elon Musk, Can you partnership with Jeep & build an awesome new 4 passenger flying Jeep Please!

    Can you imagine flying your modern Jeep around, landing, folding the rotors back, & then Driving down the trail? :)

    So, if the trail's too bumpy take off and if there's too much turbulance, land.

    Sure would cut my commute time from 50 minutes to 15 maybe
    Plus would be fun flying over the cows, oil wells, idiots
