Bell LFV: “Burning out his fuse up here alone.”

If you thought the Lunar Buggy (LRV) was astonishing… This is Bell Aerosystems artist’s interpretation of their Lunar Flying Vehicle (LFV) proposal; one of the alternative ways considered by NASA to give the astronauts more “reach” on the moon. Their flying platform was powered by a pair of rocket with had a flight range of 10-15 miles. Interestingly, its fuels were sourced from the residual propellants available in the LM descent stage.

Bell knew what they were doing.
