Mojave Desert California
Dreams of flight take on new heights as hovercraft again
takes the spotlight. I always enjoy watching sci-fi films especially when jet
packs are involved but this is real. “With
steady wind underneath, you can make objects fly.” I remember my little
brother said. With cupped palms thumping on the floor, he makes jet streams
flow through the fingertips making small toys jump. Although hovercrafts make
too much turbulence around for such little movement, it certainly defies gravity,
and whatever defies gravity no matter how little is big.
