An American and a Dutch company have created their own unique versions of flying cars, and are looking to bring them to market soon. The American firm, Terrafugia , has designed a two-seat vehicle whose wings unfold, runs on gasoline, and can fly off with a propeller. It debuted at the New York Auto Show this week. The Dutch firm, PAL-V Europe N.V ., has built the PAL-V One, a two seat gyrocopter that has three wheels. The rotor and wings fold up neatly into the vehicle.

The International Space Station, carrying astronaut Reid Wiseman of Cockeysville, flew over Baltimore Wednesday, and will do so again later this week. It was visible Wednesday from about 7:45 p.m. to 7:51 p.m. The ISS moved across the sky from southwest to northeast, looking brighter than a star but farther away than a plane. It will appear dimmer in a flyover Friday, low across the northwestern sky from 7:44 p.m. to 7:49 p.m. #sigshell { float: left; width: 320px; height: 52px; margin: 20px 0px; display: block; }

Owings Mills now has a "healthy alternative" to fast-food joints, according to Flying Avocado Cafe's creator/general manager, Lisa Valle. An offshoot of the popular Your Prescription for Health Holistic Pharmacy, the cafe opened just a couple of weeks ago. Valle says the cafe's aim is to use almost all organic produce, bread, eggs and meat, and buy locally as much as possible. And to make that healthful food taste great. Valle describes the cafe as a "great little cozy space," with mahogany tables on an acid-stained concrete floor, mahogany counters that run along the windows and wall with high stools, tin ceilings and walls painted ... you guessed it, avocado green.

Last year, Baltimore beer drinkers were introduced to Full Tilt Brewing's Berger Cookie Chocolate Stout. Less than 11 months later, Frederick's Flying Dog Brewery has announced its own collaboration with another Baltimore cookie institution, Otterbein's Bakery. Four types of beer resulted from the partnership: Imperial Hefeweizen (inspired by Otterbein's sugar cookies), Oatmeal Raisin Stout (inspired by Otterbein's oatmeal raisin cookies), Oak-Aged Hazelnut Scotch Ale (inspired by Otterbein's ginger cookies)

Isee where the airlines are engaged in another price war, which means you can fly from Baltimore to London for about seven bucks now and, as an added bonus, the three surviving members of the Beatles will greet you when you land.By now we're all familiar with how these price wars work.One airline slashes its fares 30 percent and everyone gasps"Ooooh! That's not bad!"Then another airline says: "Oh, yeah? Not only will we match thaticket price, but we'll let you bring all the carry-on luggage you want.

For one week each year the Wittman Regional Airport here is the busiest airport in the world, with up to 12,000 landings and takeoffs each day. More than 14,000 planes were tied down in the green fields around the place.It was the week of the annual Experimental Aircraft Association Fly-In Convention. More than 800,000 people were here, spectators and pilots alike, some of them staying a week, living in hotels as far away as Milwaukee, 100 miles down the road, or just camping under the wings of their aircraft.

A few months ago, after a flight from Baltimore to Miami during which I clung to the arm of a startled nun for two hours, I wrote a column about being a nervous flier.The flying itself is not what scares me. What scares me is the prospect of the plane plummeting 33,000 feet and slamming into a desolate ravine, after which it'll take weeks for teams of emergency personnel on burros to drag out what remains of the charred bodies -- assuming they haven't all been picked clean by vultures.Anyway, unlike most everything else that appears with my byline, that column on flying actually provoked a response from many readers.

I WAS TRAPPED in an airport security cattle call early one morning on my way out of Baltimore when a disturbance erupted just ahead of me in the long, serpentine line. A man wearing dress pants and a dress shirt open at the neck was berating a woman of Middle Eastern descent who was wearing a head wrap. "Why don't you dress like an American?" he said to her. "Because your people flew planes into our buildings, we have to stand in lines like this." Another man just ahead of her in line and wearing jeans and a T-shirt took up her cause, saying that because this was America, she could wear what she damn well pleased.

Any restaurant that serves food loaded with nuts, seeds and tofu runs the risk of becoming a spoonful of medicine kind of place. That's especially true when, as in the case of the Flying Avocado Cafe, the restaurant is started by two pharmacists with a strong belief in the value of healthy eating. Poor:]

Ten-year-old Lauren Economou wasn't the least bit nervous as she waited for her connecting flight. She was flying across the country by herself, home to San Diego after a visit to her grandparents in Connecticut, but she was prepared for every contingency. Her blue gym bag was stocked with a family of tiny troll dolls, a hand-held video game, art supplies and plenty of snacks and gum."The gum really helps with the pressure on your ears," Lauren explained knowledgeably, adding that "Kids shouldn't be scared fly alone at all."

A satellite that has been hurtling toward Mars for the past 10 months slammed on the brakes Sunday night, gliding into the red planet's gravity field to spend a year studying its atmosphere - and hopefully collect evidence that Mars might once have supported life. On a mission managed from NASA Goddard Space Flight Center in Greenbelt, the MAVEN spacecraft neared completion Sunday night of a 442 million-mile journey by firing six thrusters in reverse and being pulled into Mars' gravity field.

Edgar Allan Poe once wrote that those who dream during the day "are cognizant of many things which escape those who dream only by night. " So it seems entirely fitting that Baltimore can spend the first Purple Friday - or dare we say, Orange-Purple Friday - of September daydreaming of a Ravens-Orioles championship season. Technically, the Ravens can't win a championship in 2014, as that feat was accomplished by some team out of Seattle last winter (coincidentally, a fellow member of the bird family)

Ravens defensive coordinator Dean Pees was having a conversation with league officials before a recent preseason game when he jokingly said what many defensive backs are thinking these days. His point, though, was valid. "There is more contact now in the NBA than the NFL," Pees said, laughing. "What we are being called for is not a foul in the NBA. If you look in the paint, those guys are pushing, shoving and elbowing each other. "I'm all for safety in the game where they prohibit launching and helmet to helmet, but I don't know where we're headed from here.

SEATTLE -- The Orioles' 10-game West Coast road trip was a major test whether they could hold their own while playing against three playoff-caliber teams across the country. The trip was characterized by closely contested games - seven were decided by two runs or fewer - in which strong pitching and clutch hitting was often the difference. And on Sunday afternoon, as the sun set on what might be their most grueling stretch away from home this season, the Orioles finished the road trip with a 3-2 victory in 10 innings over the Seattle Mariners in front of an announced 26,523 at Safeco Field.

AirTran Airways said yesterday that it plans in May to begin flying five times a week to Seattle from Baltimore-Washington International Thurgood Marshall Airport. It will mark the airport's only nonstop flights to the Northwestern city. The airline also said it would resume seasonal service to Dallas-Fort Worth and Milwaukee, in April and May, respectively. It also will add service to Charlotte, N.C., beginning in May. The news comes on the heels of an announcement that the airline would launch service to Portland, Maine, and fly daily to BWI, beginning in June.

The Baltimore Orioles have passed the mid-season mark sitting on a comfortable perch - first place in the American League East with a four game lead (five in the loss column) over the Toronto Blue Jays. It's difficult to know whether to be overjoyed or deeply suspicious. Oh, we knew the birds had the necessary credentials to contend for a playoff spot going into the season after a third place finish in the division last year and second place the season before. Not even the devastating injury to All-Star catcher Matt Wieters requiring season-ending Tommy John surgery could entirely dampen expectations of O's fans who have finally put all those years of last-place finishes behind them.

In response to Baltimore County Councilman David Marks' recent letter about the proposed Nottingham Ridge Outlet Mall, I would again point out the project's appalling lack of community input ("Marks: Consider the alternative to the outlet mall plan," June 23). As Councilman Marks is aware, I have been a long-time supporter of both his work with the Baltimore County Council and his volunteer work within the community. In fact, I believe our working friendship began in 2008, when he was president of the Perry Hall Improvement Association and I was president of the Perry Hall Middle School PTSA.
