Taylor Aerocar

The Taylor Aerocar has a significant place in history because it has the unique distinction of being the only “certified” airplane that can also drive on US highways.

A pusher type airplane with the propeller located at the end of the tail, the wings could be folded back, as shown in these pictures, and could also be completely detached from the automobile portion of the airplane.

The wings could also be towed behind the automobile like a trailer which allowed the driver/pilot the ability to use other airports than the one landed at.
