Electric aircraft.

I was intrigued by the piece on the latest episode of "Fully Charged"

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=yaC1qgXaRvE

talking about Electric Aircraft, and how Easy Jet says it could be flying electric planes within a decade.

I was then directed to this episode of "Fully Charged" which was exclusively about a company designing an electric aircraft for the likes of the Red Bull Air Races.

Fascinating stuff. I know electric aircraft are on the go elsewhere, but this is being designed and built by Brits. Look forward to watching the progress of this aspect of EVs.

Airbus, Rolls-Royce and Siemens are to develop hybrid electric engine plane technology as part of a push towards cleaner aviation.
