    Rumor has it Elon was working on, or was that just a made up plot for his cameo in Ironman 2?

    High-Performance Efficient Aircraft With GT4|Volta Volaré

    Yesterday a diesel-propelled aircraft was on Discovery. Usually considered way too heavy to fit into a plane, a German diesel engine maker found a way around this. Benefits: no expensive aviation fuel needed. Better range... I shouldn't say these things of course here.
