Skimmer flying at Poseidos DFF

A skimmer as seen in Dinotopia: First Flight

Skimmers were sunstone powered, antigravity aerial vehicles used in ancient Poseidos for a variety of purposes. Their antigravity generators failed when exposed to too much salt water. Most are shaped like trilobites. Gideon Altaire stole a police skimmer during his escape from Poseidos, and flew it all the way to Sapphire Bay.
