A flying taxi in Buffalo, NY. You read that right. A flying taxi in Buffalo, NY, but we aren't talking about the present. But it turns out a two-man 'sky taxi' was developed by Textron’s Bell Aerosystems Company in Buffalo, NY in the 1960s.

No, we are serious. And here’s the proof...

It was invented by W.F. Moore at Bell Aerosystems for moon exploration.

This isn't the only cool aeronautics invention to come out of Buffalo, NY.  Dozens and dozens of things were invented, developed and made right here in Western New York.  Here's one that tens of thousands of people use every single day all across the world and the very first one was made right here in Buffalo.

It's an amazing story of how a top secret project was completed in an incredibly short period of time and may have been a factor in winning World War II.
