The Green Flight Challenge Expo is a showing of electric airplanes. They're currently on display in Sonoma County, and will be at Moffet Field on Monday.
There's a lot of interest in electric airplanes. Most of the pictures I've seen were smallish single-seaters, with short flight duration. But as batteries improve we can expect this to get better.
In any case I'm planning to be at the event on Monday. If anybody else is interested, sign up here:-
