Swiss aircraft Clip-Air, could revolutionize the way we think of air to land transport.

Switzerland’s École Polytechnique Fédérale de Lausanne (EPFL) is creating a new kind of aircraft called the Clip-Air that straps trains onto its wings and underside. It sounds bizarrely like baby monkeys clinging onto the underside of their mother but this aircraft involves a whole lot more technology and science.

Imagine the efficiency of a city where you can catch a flight with the ease you catch a train. Or what if you could catch a train and then have an airplane clip your train onto its machine belly? You would be sitting inside a train that was then transformed into a plane!
