A plane-car hybrid could be on sale within 20 years according to aircraft industry leaders.

Scientists at the 2008 Electric Aircraft Symposium in California believe a flying car could be a production reality.

Boeing, famous for its 747 jumbo jet, is working on a flying car that would have a range of 300 miles (482 kilometres) in the air, on the ground, or a mix of the two.

Richard Jones is leading the project at Boeing and said: 'I'm talking about making aviation available to everyone as a daily means of transport.'

Jones says a compact car-plane hybrid would be easier to fly than current small planes as technology will allow the plane to do much of the hard work."

Great idea hope it get done sooner then 20 years SHT
