An artist plans to build an 'airborne' carrier for cows

An artist has plans to build an "airborne" carrier for cows.

Bart Jansen and his fellow engineer Arjen Beltman - who are known for making the Orvillecopter in 2012, which is a flying mechanism made from his dead cat Orville's body - has admitted he wants to transport something "weird" by air, and is contemplating building a "bovine personnel carrier".

He told the BBC: We've wanted to build a helicopter for ourselves. One that we can fit in and we have been thinking about designing one that you can sit on and flies.

"If I'm going to fly, I want to fly in something weird. So we've been thinking about animals that are big enough to fly in. We have a cow at the moment - it's at the tannery right now. It's going to be like a bovine personnel carrier, but airborne."

Bart has already designed a Ostrich-copter, the Sharkjet, a Rat-copter among other technical gizmos.
