It makes sense. How many times have you seen cop cars, fire trucks or ambulances trying to force their way through traffic to get to an accident? Why don’t the cops, fire men and EMTs just fly there? Mechanix Illustrated had the idea of a twin turbine driving three ducted lift fans to deliver police to an accident scene. It could carry three passengers and had space to load injured motorists for a trip to the hospital. It could also drag damaged cars over to the shoulder, had inflatable pontoon rims for water or deep snow duty, and loudspeakers.
This is amazing, and I, for one, can’t believe it’s 2012 and we have not implemented this fantastic idea from 1958.
