These vehicles were built by Bell Aerosystems in the 1960s as part of the Apollo Project to land on the moon. Known affectionately as flying bedsteads , they were vertical take-off and landing vehicles each powered by a single jet engine. The vehicles allowed Apollo astronauts to train for real moon landings.
