I was out walking the dogs the other day and heard what I assumed was a swarm of insects approaching. I looked around but saw nothing as the sound grew louder. Then, with cat like reflexes, I looked up to see a small object in the sky. It was headed towards the airport just a stones throw from where we were. I dispatched the dogs and proceeded to the tarmac. I arrived just in time to snap a picture of the creature. It is a Sportcopter Gyroplane which is sort of an airplane that fell in love with a helicopter and reproduced. The model is call The Vortex. They have a neat video on their website. You may view it by clicking here. Maybe man was meant to fly after-all.
