Why not electric motors to power airplanes?

I caught part of a show regarding non-conventional automobile fuels, including fuel cells, high powered electric cars (very fast and quiet), hydrogen, and very high mileage/high powered vehicles (e.g. 140 MPG with lots of horses). After listening to this for a few minutes, it seems like electric motors have something to offer to aviation. Thanks

    Good Question.
    If you would like to see an electric airplane, go to the link below. It is from EAA AirVenture 2007 at Oshkosh, Wisconsin. If you like experimental aircraft and stuff like that, check out the EAA site.
    Leary to fly – It is fun!
