One of my favorites

I love this pic! It's by no means a great example of 20th Century photography but I love it. Check out the freshly squeezed mutant O.J. and actual sized props of the fruits grown in Mesa Verde. The flying vehicle had a name and it was going to be one of our contest questions. Who can tell me the name?

  1. Isn't the vehicle called a Desert Hovercraft? At least that's what I've always heard.

    Interesting fruits in the foreground there. The ones in the center look like papaya/pineapple hybrids, and the one on the extreme left looks like a Wonka-esque cross between grapes and gumballs.

    The vehicle had a name. One word. Can you guess?

  3. Was it "Harvester"? Didn't she use voice commands to tell it to finish picking?

  4. The Harvesters were the farming robots, I believe.

  7. I just stumbled on this blog and I'm in awe...amazing!! I always dreamed of exploring Horizons this way when I was a wide-eyed kid riding the attraction OVER AND OVER. I don't know the name of the hovercraft but I can tell you that the damn thing is sitting at Walt Disney Studios Paris. I nabbed a pic of it while on the tour tram...it's just sitting on the lot:

  8. Why do they let incredible stuff like this just sit outside!? It would look fabulous in my living room. I could sit in it, drink beer, listen to the Horizons music and let the stress of life melt away...

  9. I have JUST managed to find this blog and I wanted to let you both know how much I LOVE it! Wish I had known you two back in that time period. I would have loved nothing more than to run around that attraction with you. As for the name of the Hovercraft.. I can't help but notice that this "contest" is, as of yet, unresolved. Was it "Pegasus"?
