Product description


In 1940 Henry Ford of Model T fame said: 'Mark my word. A combination airplane and motor car is coming. You may smile. But it will come.' We're still waiting, although Moore and Nero suggest that it is unease among manufacturers and the authorities rather than technical issues that have prevented flying cars from becoming reality. Oddly, the ill-fated Darien expedition, originated by Bank of England founder William Paterson and which nearly bankrupted Scotland in the late 17th century, appears among the 50 subjects here. --The Shetland Times
