Cliff Allen of Terrafugia explains what makes the vehicle unique.

An American company has demonstrated a car that can also fly.

The makers say it's the first vehicle in the world to have met strict safety standards for both flying and driving in America.

This makes it the first "street legal aeroplane", said the man from the company making it.

Known as the Terrafugia Transition, the vehicle has two seats, four wheels and retractable wings.

The vehicle completed its first successful test flight near Montreal in Canada in March.

A retired US Air Force test pilot took the maiden voyage - after volunteering to do it.

The vehicle flew at 1,400 feet for eight minutes.
