For fans of The Avengers film and comic books, the Heli-carrier is an aircraft carrier that can fly. In the movie, there's a significant scene where the aircraft takes off from the water, but that's all special effects. What native118 did, like his model for his Back to the Future flying car, was show a model version of this without the Hollywood CGI wizards:
No word yet on whether there are little versions of the Hulk and Thor inside the heli-carrier. But I did think I saw a tiny Black Widow.
