When Pigs Fly
One-off / half hour
Production CompanyFiveson Entertainment
Produced ForSmithsonian Networks
Spiro Markozanis claims that his company FlyingThingz
can make just about anything fly – including your doghouse, your lawnmower and even a pig. Last year FlyingThingz sold 600 non-aerodynamic craft, including mowers, tanks and sports cars.
Looks can be deceiving and in exploring the world’s most improbable flying machines, we’ll see how they get off the ground despite their very un-aircraft like appearance.
Ever dreamed of skipping the traffic during your commute to work? Then take a look at the Taylor Aerocar- half car, half airplane. These flyers will have you wondering “What were they thinking?”
Even animals get their turn! Watch as a team of “flying experts” are given the challenge of constructing a Flying Pig.
The next time you say an impossible task will happen “when pigs fly,” take a quick look up in the sky!
