El Capitan State Beach

When I was at El Capitan State Beach with Great Outdoors Santa Barbara I walked what used to be the paved bike path from El Capitan to Refugio State Beach. Part of the route has eroded away, so much so that the path is closed, although pedestrians still hike along the closed portion.

Supersonic Passenger Aircraft

Aerion Corp. of Reno is developing a supersonic airplane that could carry 12 passengers. Their intent is to develop a plane that would not require any change in regulations in order to fly legally. The plane would fly at just below the speed of sound over land, so there would be no sonic boom, with speed increasing to Mach 1.6 over water, but they say it will be able to fly at Mach 1.2 without generating a sonic boom. Target price is $120 million. Twenty-three jets have already been sold at that price. The first flight is planned for 2023.
