'Flying Cars' May Never Really Make It

Flying Car - Texas A&M Today.jpg
Texas A&M Today

Derek Price, author of the "Cargazing" column that appears in the Herald-Banner and is nationally syndicated, reflecting on a recent NPR feature, says that true "flying cars" may never happen, because "cars" that fly or "planes" that drive may not be practically compatible. But he says drones may someday exist that transport people in much the same way that taxis do now. Derek says Majors Field Airport in Greenville will host its annual "Fly-in" of vintage planes Saturday, Nov. 6.
