Inside the ‘flying taxi’ that could soon ferry passengers around London
This one was particularly exciting to be involved in. I got to shadow the team in shooting the video, and then got to write about it soon afterwards.
While flying cars may sound like vehicles of science fiction, the futuristic vehicles are slowly but surely becoming a reality.
This week, Vertical Aerospace showcased its flying taxi prototype in London’s Canary Wharf, and Mirror Online was given an exclusive behind-the-scenes tour.
The vehicle, dubbed Seraph, is an electric vertical take-off and landing aircraft that could take to the skies as early as 2023.
Seraph features six arms and 12 rotors, which are each powered by independent motors.
Speaking to Mirror Online, Simon Harper, head of testing at Vertical Aerospace, explained: “They’re completely independent, so if one was to stop working, the other would pick up the load.

I am a journalist who’s passionate about climate change and climate justice. For me that’s the most important story I can write about and contribute to fixing. As a journalist, my way of going about it is to educate people about this existential threat that’s bogged down by skepticism, denialism, lack of comprehension of scope, and general apathy.
I also write about a lot of other things, like social justice, protests, pop culture, lifestyle, and esports. Albeit these stories won’t be as frequent as they depend on what I find fascinating and meaningful to write about at the moment.
This website is both my portfolio and my space to share interesting information- about myself or climate change. Any time I’m commission by a publication (fingers crossed) I’ll crosspost it here for all my audience to see.
This site may even turn into an actual blog from time to time. If I have any personal revelations that my audience can learn from, I may share it here
