Heading skyward to beat gridlock
By Maggie Shiels
Technology reporter, BBC News, Silicon Valley

The solution to gridlock on our overcrowded roads is to take to the air in a plane-car hybrid that will revolutionise the way society works.

This vision of the future twenty years hence was revealed at the 2008 Electric Aircraft Symposium held a stone’s throw from San Francisco airport in California.

Plotting the next frontier in green technology was Richard Jones, a technical fellow at Boeing Phantom Works.

Aircars replacing groundcars is a perennial “just around the corner” prediction.  The earliest prediction I’ve seen was in 1943 (when it was to happen right after the War ended.)
