Episode #45: Lightning the Magical Hoverboard from The Thirteenth Hour
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 riding on Lightning.
Lightning’s invisible airshield to protect her rider can be glimpsed here at her nose, where you can see the air currents.
Lightning can expand to fit another passenger.
As shown in the picture above and faintly here, when Lightning flies, a rainbow of exhaust is emitted.
