China makes UFO – level 3

19-06-2023 07:00

The world’s first manned flying saucer inspired by UFOs completed its test flight in Shenzhen, China.

Manufactured by Shenzhen UFO Science and Technology Co., the electric Vertical Take-Off and Landing (eVTOL) aircraft was developed for tourism and performances over more than three years. The vehicle, which can be piloted by a person, resembles a cartoon UFO and is designed to take off and land on land or water. While it remains unclear when or if it will be available for passengers other than the pilot, the incredible footage captured the saucer soaring over a lake in Shenzhen.

The achievement marks a significant milestone in the development of futuristic transportation technology.

Difficult words: resemble (to look like), milestone (a significant stage or event in the development of something).

What potential applications and implications does this flying saucer have for the transportation sector?
