A concept visibly close to the AM38 “La Mule”
It’s hard to say more in the sight of this image taken from the back, except that the levitation seems to be good. However, the concept seems very close to the 38-foot prototype nicknamed “The Mule”, whose flight videos have been causing a sensation for months on the web and networks. Team American Magic and their first AC75 will be based in Florida, in Pensacola, this winter. We can’t wait for them to lift another part of the veil on this incredible flying carpet, developed and built in the utmost secrecy. A little video, gentlemen Americans, perhaps? And a little info (s) in passing?
