The Flying Supervan

I am so jealous of Håvve Fjell and Wings of Desire for their amazing new suspension van, the ultimate guerrilla suspension vehicle. Those with keen memories may remember me planning on building something similar on top of my monster truck for bridge suspensions — just drive onto a bridge, swivel the arm over the side, and boom, you’re ready to go — back in the winter of 2003, but like so many of my projects, it never happened. Well, Håvve actually made it happen!!! So awesome. Here are some pictures of it being taken for a test flight, photos by Helene Fjell. Don’t forget to order their amazing new book of suspension photos, Learning To Fly — watch for details on how to get your copy at



That last photo is the view from inside the van by the way!

  1. I’ll be building a rear bumper for my jeep with brackets to attach a similar apparatus to, hopefully it’ll be done by springtime.
