Dreams of flying are among the most common dreams, along with falling and losing teeth. They're certainly the most enjoyable of the three. For some people, flight is more than a dream. Pilots, adrenaline junkies, and inventors have all had occasion to defy gravity and take to the skies. But we wanted to ask the public about extreme flights of fancy -- superpowers and jetpacks, flying pigs and floating food. Be sure to take our 6-question Quick Poll to fill out the entire survey. Oh, and don't try any of this at home!

    The ostrich I saw flying actually had purple feathers, the exact color of the check mark and vote total above. Feathers are great, much better than hair. Hair only comes in a few basic colors, like brown and black and blond and blue, but feathers come in all the colors of the rainbow. I wish I had feathers.

    I was an Air Traffic Controller in the Air Force. I heard pilots report hitting animals, other than birds, at relatively high altitude. Snakes were the most common. I don't explain em. I just report the reports. But I can tell you that I did personally receive reports from pilots that they had just hit a snake at 1200 feet above ground.

    There's been a few flying monkey battles at my house. Sometimes the flying chicken joins in.

    I know someone who lives in central Kansas who says that during a tornado monkeys sometimes do fly!

    Once driving south ahead of a line of thunderstorms I saw what looked like a scene from the Wizard of Oz. This doesn't really convey it but what I saw were what I estimated by gridcount method to be upwards of 200 Turkey Vultures all gliding, wings tucked back, in the same direction I was going and all one altitude and DESCENDING - just ahead of the squall line apparently wet and racing to dryer air and sunshine where they could soar once again as they are generally seen. But these weren't doing anything like that.
    I first spotted one large formation out my right hand side then looked around to my left and saw at least as many more - roughly 100 on either side. I was surrounded!
    Now and then one would flap to stay airborne then another and it would progress like dominoes for a little then they would all resume gliding. I only wish I had had a video cam as I would have recorded a once-in-a lifetime sight like a movie scene out of Hollywood.

    a humminbird is the most impressive flyer. it hovers, and without seeing it move, it appears in another place in an instant.
  • bill.fi... mikeyav... 2012/08/17 19:56:29
    Since hummingbirds are vertebrates with aerodynamically-refined wings it's not exaggerating to say they can outfly a bee! Truly amazing animals.

    Actually, it was not a squirrel. It was a wild rabbit. Wow, can they move. All you see is a white dot (their tail). They can cover an acre in a split second. My dogs don't stand a chance catching one. LOL

    When I was 10 years old, me and my cousin were pelted when hundreds (maybe thousands) of minnows fell from the sky at a campground in southern Louisiana.
