The “Flying Platform” will exist



The “Flying Platform” will be used as a personal hover device. Unquestionably dangerous, the wingless aircraft will be in development by the Navy for soldier transport, and will be a “…speedy coupe for businessmen of the future.”
American Navy indeed produced such vehicles, but they were too slow and couldn't fly more than some feet.
