I doubt we will ever get to that with possible exception for planes about the size of Learjet.

In 10-20 years we will have another set of problems to solve.Look back 10-20 ago and you can almost see where we are heading technologically.

10-20 years ago were the 787 battery fires, weren't they? When I was a fueler, we used to joke how even after they went all electric, we'd still have a job because the only way they could ensure a quick turnaround was to have precharged batteries standing by, and somebody would have to swap them out. Kinda like with cordless drills nowadays.

Curiosity point about your Twin-Yak-Jet machine: Does it have separate fuel systems for the recip engines and the jet? Or does the jet engine run on avgas, like the jets of a C-123?

Here's the official page for the Yak-110. I saw some posts about the development of this beast. It would be awesome to see in person.

That official page doesn't seem to have any specs, but it did include the email address for pilot Jeff Boerboon. He promptly replied that the Yak 110 has three fuel tanks -- each recip engine has an outer wing tank for avgas, and the center wing tank holds jet fuel.

So now I have to wonder if the C-123 was the only plane that ran jets on avgas.
