I expect to see the pilot hunkered over the control wheel, holding it in a white-knuckled fear-of-death grip at 11 and 1. And the rainbow flag sticker on the tail.

Part of the way that I take into the office is a ~6 mile stretch of state route with two lanes in each direction and a posted limit of 55 MPH, mostly everyone does somewhere between 60 and 65. I typically fall in the former camp.

So one morning a few years ago I'm tooling along on my way to work being passed by slightly faster traffic on the left, whatever, when a vehicle swooshed by doing--easily--70 to 75. It was a white Prius towing two jet skis.

No one believes me, of course.

sunderland56: I'm pretty sure that one pound of kerosene has a lot more usable energy in it than one pound of charged batteries. I know that Boeing engineering is a little slow on the uptake; but in an aircraft, weight matters.
