Marty McFly (Michael J. Fox) riding a hoverboard in Back to the Future 2.  Clicking on the picture links back to its source page, which is about how Lexus is supposedly designing a real life hoverboard that we can only hope is a piece of valid journalism.  Anything less would be a cruel joke, people!

Logan and Aurora fly off on Lightning to find their place in the world.  Clicking on this picture takes you to the 80s new wave style song “Searching For Forever,” which is essentially about flying on Lightning.

As shown in the picture above and faintly here, when Lightning flies, a rainbow of exhaust is emitted.
