Boeing 737-800 aircraft and a Tesla Model S P90D electric car raced each other down an Australian runway this week in a stunt to promote a newly announced Qantas-Tesla collaboration. Tesla won the ground-based portion of the race but my bet is the 737 will dominate when they meet for round two in a more aerial capacity, which, to be clear, hasn’t been announced ... yet.
We won’t make you duel a Tesla or a 737 in this week’s Avionics News Quiz, but you’re certainly willing to give it a go if you’ve got one on hand!
