With its armored doors and bulletproof windows, the burly Humvee has been a stalwart ground transport for the U.S. military. But now the Pentagon thinks the hulking vehicle should also be able to fly. On Tuesday, Pratt & Whitney's Rocketdyne division in Canoga Park announced that it had been awarded $1 million to design a propulsion system for a flying Humvee. Don't scoff ? there is good reason for an airborne truck, defense officials say. With the proliferation of improvised explosive devices, or IEDs, on the ground, a hovering Humvee would be an ideal way to keep soldiers out of harm's way, Pentagon officials said in announcing the award.

There is little time to think. An enemy attack plane comes roaring across the horizon from behind a distant hill. A soldier in full combat gear raises a portable anti-aircraft missile launcher to his shoulder, picks up the attacking jet and fires off a Stinger missile. The action is fast--it all happens in a matter of seconds. The infrared-seeking missile locks on its target, and a hit is marked by an exploding ball of fire.

Local transit officials Thursday recommended the awarding of a $205-million contract for 72 Green Line cars to a U.S.-German team that promises to open a Los Angeles plant that will be the nation's first modern manufacturer of rail cars. The award to Siemens Duewag Corp., a German company with a Sacramento facility, would create about 200 jobs in California and pump $17 million into the state's economy, company officials said.
