Artist's rendering shows what an Advanced Vehicle Engineers' Aircar will look like when airborne. Modified production Ford Pinto is utilized with an airframe and engine of a Cessna, which is detachable in minutes so car may be used on highways.

Advanced Vehicle Engineers (AVE) Mizar
Что вы получите, если соедините самолет Cessna Skymaster с автомобилем Ford Pinto? Автомобиль смерти.

Инженер Генри Смолински (Henry Smolinski) оставил свою работу в Northrop Grumman и создал революционно-инжениринговую компанию Advanced Vehicle Engineers. Его попытки построить летающий автомобиль под названием Mizar («Мицар») закончились, когда крыло прототипа, отвалилось во время полета, убив при этом самого Смолински и тест-пилота. Также была разбита мечта об еще одном дешевом и надежном летающем автомобиле «для всех».


Anyone who has ever driven a Ford Pinto can attest to the safety problems inherent in the car’s design. Seemingly unworried by that, an Oxnard, California company called Advanced Vehicle Engineers (or AVE) designed this bizarre hybrid consisting of a Ford Pinto with a removable flight assembly taken from a Cessna Skymaster. Built between 1971 and 1973, the Mizar was scheduled to go into production in 1974. AVE predicted that anyone would be able to buy their own flying car for as little as $18,300. Unfortunately, during a test flight on September 11, 1973, the right wing strut gave out during a flight test and the vehicle crashed, killing its inventor, Henry Smolinski, and the pilot, Harold Blake. Poor construction and faulty welds were blamed for the tragedy.

Красивая мечта,
из за крыла пропала?
Не верится в то мне,
но нет с тех пор ведь нет.
