Bonkers! A Life-sized Flying Superman Model

Friends release a life-size Superman into the sky above, leaving onlookers asking themselves ‘is it a bird, or a plane?’.

Lawyer Everton Marcelo, 40, from Ribeirao Preto, Brazil, released a battery powered Superman figure soaring into the sky, looking just like the famous hero. Everton’s friends create flying objects using an Aeromodelo design, a propeller engine and a lithium polymer battery inside.

The idea then came to turn the flying object into Superman, making it look like the action hero was really flying above the Brazilian town.
