OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERAThe AeroMobil 3.0 prototype, piloted by its inventor, spectacularly crashed during a test flight in west Slovakia last week.

Stefan Klein, co-founder of tech company AeroMobil, flying car’s inventor and test pilot, was testing the latest experimental AeroMobil prototype in Nitra, Slovakia, when something went wrong at an altitude of approximately 900 feet.
