Prince William to take air ambulance job
AVweb

Aviation is last major source of toxic lead in US
Chicago Tribune via Stars and Stripes
Leaded gasoline is such a well-known scourge that automobile fuel made with the brain-damaging additive is still sold in only six countries: Afghanistan, Algeria, Iraq, Myanmar, North Korea and Yemen.

The amount of lead churned into the air by cars and factories has declined by more than 90 percent since the 1970s, and average concentrations of the toxic metal in children have plummeted almost as dramatically. But one industry stubbornly remains a holdout in the decades-long push for a lead-free America.
