June 28, a prototype flying car completed a 35-minute flight between international airports in Nitra and Bratislava, Slovakia.

The hybrid car-aircraft, AirCar, is equipped with a BMW engine and runs on regular petrol-pump fuel.

The creator of the flying car, Prof Stefan Klein, said it could fly about 1,000km, at a height of 2,500m.

The car has now completed more than 40 hours of test flights.

It takes two minutes and 15 seconds to transform from car into aircraft.
