This video from YouTube was captured on a night shoot on 11 September 2011.
From this clip it looks as if the vehicle will use the same kind of thrust as a Harrier Jump Jet to power itself into the air and then speed away.
The Story Behind The Empire Strikes Back
Star Wars nearly killed George Lucas.
The director’s ambitious space saga, which nobody understood nor cared about (not even its cast) looked set to be a disaster of intergalactic proportions. During production in 1976, the special effects department was struggling with its groundbreaking technologies, while unbearable heat in Tunisia had tempers rising…
The Story Behind Star Wars
Star Wars starts with George Lucas, the boy from Modesto (the nearest thing they have to Tatooine in California) who grew up to be the bearded billionaire king of blockbusters.
Born in May 1944 to a stationary store-owning father, George grew up watching Buck Rogers serials and racing cars.

Daredevil reboot signs director David Slade
Twilight: Eclipse director David Slade has signed on to direct the Daredevil reboot for 20th Century Fox. Having proven that he can handle the demands of studios, mega budgets and baying fans with Eclipse, Slade seems like the perfect fit for Daredevil.
