PIONEERS: FORD MODEL T & SPIRIT OF ST. LOUIS - Today the challenge is to make automotive transport clean, in a sustainable world, for a healthier future.  Charles Lindbergh changed history on the 20th May 1927, when he crossed the Atlantic Ocean in his single engine monoplane. Has the electric aircraft come of age sufficiently to cross the Atlantic on hydrogen?
